Yeah I guess its possible. But nobody around here runs Rockwells with anything less then a 44" tire.

Anyone have some 39.5 Boggers on Rockwell wheels i could borrow ? :smokin:

40" tire is the Max.
Borrowing a set or even sharing your tires between team mates sometimes works.

Need teams that want to compete to get their entry form to me
to confirm your presence.
I've got a lot of promoting to do!
Would like to get TV coverage such as Spike TV back to film this year.

It takes 3 rigs
3 drivers
3 spotters
1 team captain
some spare parts, great team work, a little luck and a lot of will!

Team entry form and event rules can be found here:
http://www.rorp.com/Events/2008/TopShop/index.htm

Team entry fees ($250 per team plus an additional $2000 goes to the
top 3 teams)
