PW came with some scary looking tires on 16.5” rims.  The plan was to go to a more standard 16” rim and tires and Discount Tire agreed to perform the work- 7 rims total.  Turns out 16” rims were obstructed by the front brake calipers.  So went the other way with 17” tires and rims which fits dandy. Total process took about a month with the 17” wheel delivery taking the bulk of the time.  Trying to find some bolt on simulators to fit but it looks like this might be kinda an odd ball rim with a 16.5” rim 8 lug circle and 17” dia.  In communication with Pacific Duelies now trying to work through this one.  Getting brakes checked now.
