Default Installing Beringer wheels and brakes

I just installed the main gear legs, and I am about to install the Beringer wheels and brakes. Since they must be mounted with the calipers at the 4 and 8 o’clock positions, do they create any interferences with the wheel pants? Any photos available? I did a search here, but didn’t see any. Thanks in advance.

Nope, they fit just fine, plenty of room. I did install an adel clamp to "aid" in keeping the steel wire routed appropriately, I'll try to get a pic up later.

The bottom of the wheel pants will be trimmed back a bit more to fit the larger wheel.
