Ordered some maxxis trailer tires and am replacing the hubs; Rusted races and stripped lugs, so easier to just replace them.

Need to step up my game, April is coming quick!

Unless your making over 600 HP, within .030" is by far close enough... Good on you that you did it though. Just curious, is this on a new bearing?
