ITP Black 212's and 26" AMS Slingshots

New shoes for new machine and will link some pix.
Rims are 12" and 7" wide with 5"+ 2" offset.
Tires are AMS Slingshot 26" by 11" on all four corners
Do not touch at full lock, full suspension droop or sitting static and I don't think at full compression either.
Ground to frame clearance is 11" after install, with rear suspension at lowest setting.
Stock rear tire/rim weights (crappy bathroom scale 30lbs) and new 37lbs.

Only driven 100 metres and back on pavement and tire diameter seems just right for gearing, will know better after a rip in the dirt tomorrow.

Gonna be a mud thrower on the front I fear and am planning on fender extensions using UMHW sheeting cut and fastened with push pins, more on that after I get sheeting....

Thanks Papajoe,
Gave them a 130 kms run yesterday and they corner and grip gravel road, mud really well. Have to make time to mess with tire pressure as they have a stiff side wall so run a little rougher than stock (think they are 8 ply or maybe six?). Steering effort is fine for 11" tire on the front (they measure 10" on my reckoning, I think perhaps because of 7" wide rim?). Fender extensions are in the future.... Especially on the front, have it figure with stock push pins (I think) just need the material. I need to track down sheets of UMHW to make them, thinking 3mm thick titanium impregnated UHMW (read exceptionally strong and flexible) sheeting should do the trick. May also clad the inner fenders to minimize mud and Keerap getting into engine area, and chewing on making a under driver's storage bin.
