    Damn it! I told my wife to quit posing for other guys avatars!......

    I am not a wheel expert but from the numbers you posted I think you will not have any issues.

  5. Can you give me those numbers in metric ... Im pretty close to Canada.

    .... looks like wheel #2 would handle a ace of spades on a clothespin quite nicely.
  6. What??? You can't do metric in your head?

    1mm = .040 (approx, actually is .03937), so your .100 value is close to 2.54 mm.

    Take any of your numbers and divide by .03937 and you have your metric equivalent.

    The radial numbers all appear to be within acceptable limits. #2 and # 4 appear to be too much on lateral- but a partial shim between the wheels and drum surface misght correct that.
