New wheels were dropped over the last few days. Just looking at them still wrapped in the protective shipping materials, the sight of them left me concerned about wheel well/fender clearance. My ITP mud tires are labeled 30". So getting 32" tires no big deal right? Wrong! I should have measured the ITP tires. When I did, they came in at 28.5" best. Look at the difference, the MotoClaws are true 32" tires. Close to 4" difference in height. Mounted the front first, tested. about 2" of clearance at wheel well, plenty at XMR extended fenders. Whew! Lesson from this. Do not believe what is molded for tire size. Measure! Anyhow, this setup looks strong, should improve traction in many conditions. Extra two more inches of ground clearance, which is great for riding over blowdown trees on trails in the woods. Drawback- the tailgate is even higher now, it was high to begin with on the XMR, can be an issue lifting heavy stuff into bed.
