Running a 155-55/14 and a 185-65/14. The 155-55 is a little shorter than the 195-45's that sell for $200 each. I paid $150 for two 155-55/14's on ebay. Federal Formoza brand. I have done a lot of research with the help of a tire expert friend of mine and these are perfect sizing for lowering with 14's

I am Totaly pleased with goin back to the 14" wheel . This front wheel n tire size just gave me almost 3 more inches in travel in the tub. No tub cutting is my goal and trial and error has paid off!

3.5" Drop plates with notched frame in rear. Front is not finished but will be adding drop spindles and adjusters. Going to narrow front beam 4.5/5 inches(optional) A quickie lowering job was done on the front,going to do it the correct way soon.

It appears to be darker than actually is. Last shot shows the shellac color better.

Kale,
Did you make the tent in your bus?
Looks like yellow and white checkered, or is that just some cloth in the top?
