A few weeks and loving this combo. An unintended consequence of these new wheels is that I can easily check the pads and bleed the brakes without removing the wheels.

Looks great and timely for me. What is the distance from the ground to the high spot of each (F/R) wheel arch?

26" F and 27 1/8" R.

Keep in mind that I have a front coilover suspension and have it lowered about an inch. In the rear I have lowered leaf springs with a 1" taller shackle. After the HRPT I will go back to the stock shackle to see how it looks with 1/2" less.

Edit: My tires are about 27" tall.

Thanks. I have the SoT coil overs up front and 4 1/2 leaf mid-eyes in the rear. I am thinking my tires are 26"-ish. Appreciate the reply. My next move...
