Crusader 315 Tire Size upgrade problems.
Well, I was really happy to get the may-pops off and get some decent tires on my trailer. I thought I had done plenty of research and visual inspections. Apparently I did not and now have a potential rubbing situation. Any thoughts on this? The pic with about 3/8" clearance is normal position, the pic with much less clearance the trailer was on an odd angle. The problem bracket is on the passenger/kitchen slide. Any suggestions?
1. Tires were special ordered, so taking them back is not really an option.
2. I can use my metal cutoff tool to trim the bracket down. Tire is only a 1/2" closer to the bracket than the factory tires were.
3. Get a welder to use a torch to trim the bracket.
4. Opening the slide less than a 1/2" would move the bracket out past the tire. I have trip coming soon and this may have to be my primary option for now.
Yes, this was a stupid mistake so let's save all of the "You Dummy" comments. I was so excited about new shoes and now I am almost sick.
