!5" rims with 70' are what most of them use.
You could try 16"
Try to get the tire same height as the bike rear (tyres ) tire.

ok , spent the day possitioning the diff in the right possition and hight, because i have not got the body yet, i have only mounted the diff bythe two top brackets, on to the old shock mounts , and the two bottom ajustable arms, it's in the measurements that i was given, but i have 1" either way adjustment, for when i fit the body, ,also started with the prop shaft , the photo shows the two shaft at two different widths , im going to ask , my father inlaw to machine them for me at work , i have also made the shaft adjustable , i know i did not have too, but again it's for adjustment

the back end is pivioting on these two top supports at the moment , you can see the round bar on the left is not straight, this is so it clears the air compressor unit, i tacked a bar across the backend ,then

measured and found the center, , also put a mark on the 2x2 boxing and used a spirit level to line the two marks up , so now the diff should be centered,



this is a side view

Sure know where your coming from about build costs,took mine for paint monday he'd only seen picture of body,much bigger than i thought he said.Then he looked at candy red body sample,thats expensive paint.So expecting larger than is estimate when bodies ready for collection.

Rang vosa up yesterday originally was quoted £85 for inspection,then gets hit with that for a motorcycle,trikes £104 on top of the £40 for the MOT.GOVERMENT SCAMS.



Keep thinking of cruising on ya finished trike or these builds will turn us to
