Thumbs up Re: Dse mini tube tire fitment question

I would either get in touch with Frank from PRODIGY CUSTOMS or get in touch with DSE directly.
Both offer great advice and it'll be done right the 1st time!

With a stock width rear you will need a 7 1/4" BS on a 11" wheel.

Frank do you some time narrow the rear on a minitub job.If it were me I think I would it will give a better effect.There may be a cost issue though.

Narrow the rear gives a nice deep lip wheel for sure, adds to the cost and time though. Gut the housing, cut and narrow, new or respline axle. Quick grand

Re: Dse mini tube tire fitment question

I have customer that love it both ways. most do want a deep lip, bt many want a high positive offset also. And the feelings are usually very strong either way
