    Just bought some 5.5x13 steels for the 105E.. it’s all standard at the front just now. upon fitting the wheels the tyre runs the strut .. I have found I need 1/2 inch space to allow wheel to turn without fouling the strut . The backspace is 4& 1/2 inch on the steels .. I was advised against fitting 6j,s for clearance on the leading edge of the wing . I doubt a 6j would have a different backspace ? Don’t like spacers but it would seem the only option just now .. your thoughts guy,s??

    Haha.. yea I thought the same .. we have sorted it . The n/s one was no problem.. the o/s has had some rough repaint work to the inner axle where the bearing sits & is causing the issue .. Thanks .
