The 10 will be going up on gear soon, when the wheels and brakes from Matco get here in a couple weeks. I have in my shop new tires from the factory for the nose and mains - I guess they're the standard Chinese jobs, haven't looked in awhile.
My plan is to end up with Desser high-performance / elite retreads in all three spots, and I will want to mount my wheel pants accordingly.
My question is whether it makes better sense to mount the tires I have now, set the pants with spacers to anticipate the larger retreads when the factory originals wear out, or sell the Van's tires in the classifieds (is there a market?) and start out with the Dessers. On a turf home field, the originals might last a disappointingly long time
