    No luck selling my 17-inch artillery wheels, so I'm thinkin' about having my hubs re-drilled to match the small bolt circle, and running them on the front of my altered.

    Anyone know a good source for non-radial tires in that size? I'd need something good for at least 100 mph. Seems like there might be some 17-inch cycle tires available, but they would amost have to be radials - I'd think.

    The current (and VERY old) tires are 5.15/5.25 'stones - and the wheels look to be about 4 1/4" to 4 1/2" wide.

    Thanks -

    Yeah, I've got some 17" artilleries and Coker has some pretty nice wide whites, plus they're not that expensive (like $120 each, about the same as a good set of 16" ply's) When I'm ready to mount my artilleries that's where I'm gonna get my tires. Plus, they support the HAMB like no other.
