anyone has found tires for knock off wheels thjat fit the body?? Also
just about ready to install the windshield. I assume the split in the
rubber moulding belongs on the bottom vs. the top of the windshield?
Thanks for your help,

just beginning, so tires a bit premature. I have shaved the lower rear
spring seat to provide a mite extra rear inside clearance.
Europe seems to have some selection in this size, but I have found only
one H-rated AA tire in this size in the USA, the Maxxis MA-703, from
