red neck take a tape and run it around the tire in the middle to get the roll we don't run those sizes around here so i have no idea what we're look'n at here
flat i'm not understanding you post there are you saying that you run 9 inches od stagger in the front and then 70 in tires on the rear? never heard of such all we need to know is the roll of your rear tires
