Subject: Car wheels on URAL


I would like to mount carwheels on my URAL now the rear wheel is in the center when i will mount a carwheel from 6" or 7" the wheel is out off the center does that mather.

I think when the rear wheel is out off center to the left side (from behind view) it wil ride better.

Thanks in front.

If you have a right side mounted car, having the wheel rim and tire set more to the left would cause less strain on the axle. Since you have a cantilevered axle (unless it has been modified), having the weight and load concentrated closer to the swing-arm will reduce the shear forces and torsional forces on the axle and swing-arm. This will reduce the tendency to bend the axle or twist the swing-arm even though the wheel/tire assembly may be heavier than the original one.
