fitting tires

First you need to know your rim back space.
Spring sag will dictate tire heighth and width.
This is trial and error.
I was lucky enough to have a few friends with similar rims to try out.

Use a rim 2 inches narrower than the tire.
A taller tire will reduce 1/4 mile time and increase mileage and MPH.
