I've found several of these tire narrowing threads while archiving the forum.
I think this is one of the better ones.....and bonus.....Halgar actually sounds knowledable in this one. :lol:

Man, did you google this or what?! :mrgreen: Nice response!

I just bought a set of the Imex dually tires so I can put single duallies on my Rockbull project... I was wondering what is the best way to cut the rims to narrow them a hacksaw???

Hacksaw, dremel, band saw, scroll saw. any of those will work fine as lng as you cut straight.
