Do any of you have a foolproof method of getting a left rear Burris 33 to mount and come down to 32-32 1/2 circumference? I do have a tire band and mostly 8 1/2 wheels. Will they mount on a 9? I fight these things all the time. Thanks!
crank your band down to 10-3/8 when measured across the band and put a mark with a sharpie or a paint pen where the 2 halves overlap and that will be your mark for 32-3/4" .... it wont guarantee a 32-3/4" tire but it will be more consistent this way. The key is to not overstretch the tire the first time you mount it up ....hope this helpsThanks guys. I admit that 32 inches is pretty greedy and I'd be thrilled to just get them down to 32 1/2, not the 33 inches I usually wind up with. Is there a rule of thumb as far as how far to cinch down the tire band?
Watch cranking down a band as tight as it will go , I've seen some of them start getting out of shape the tighter you crank them, you don't want to be racing on eggs
