I am likely #37 then, as I picked it up on April 27th. I would just guess they built one additional unit between those dates.

on tires/wheels...
we have 205/75/r14 in load range C with max cap @ 1760lbs.

I was unable to find much else in 14" size.

But in 13" i found load range D with 2" less overall size, which would give ~1" more clearance?? with a max capacity of 1610lbs. Still well above what any of us would have in our rigs (i'm at 2400lbs fully loaded at scales). But then i wonder if we would have to change brake assym also. Too much thinking...gonna chill with Cari, PopCorn, and SciFi.

I know from my association with the four wheel drive crowd, whole articles have been researched and written about the "real world" tire sizes and what is printed on the sidewall in such publications as Peterson's Four Wheel Drive and Sport Utility, Four Wheeler, JP magazine, and others. Between manufacturers and even different line-ups from the same manufacturer, there is a vast variance in the actual tire size and what is stamped into the sidewall. It should be criminal, as tire rubbing causes damage and safety issues. Things look good on paper, but when one can not rely on a "standard" of a size, things go awry. I wonder if something changed when disc brakes were replaced by drum units?

Mark, Thom, and Brian;
Do all of you have HI-RUN ST 205/75/D14 tires on your ParkLiner? Is it possible that these tires are out of specification? Regarding your axle, I believe ParkLiner changed from FlexRide axles to Dexter axles at some point in production. Do you know what brand axle you have?

Tim,
What brand of tires is on your ParkLiner? Since your unit is a bit older, I am assuming your ParkLiner has a FlexRide axle. Is that correct?

In "normal folks time", it's been a mere 24 hours. I try to bear in mind that such people probably have other things to attend to as well, such as having an actual life!

Francesca, I came across this graphic just today. And when I saw the post you made, it seemed like perfect timing.

Yes on HI-RUN ST 205/75/D14.
Yes on Dexter axle.

I really hope the solution isn't going to a 13" tire. The ground clearance is fairly low already and going lower doesn't seem like a step in the right direction.

Luckily, wheel size has little to do with tire size.


Ok, I apologize for the snarky comment, looks like it's going to be one of those days

Are you saying that going to a smaller combination to increase the clearance to avoid the rubbing won't decrease the ground clearance? If so, please explain!

I think the solution they come up with will involve moving the axle. Either down or back, or both. Asking folks to accept smaller tires (and tire lower load capacity) does not seem sensible, especially since the problem is likely to worsen as the torsion axles age.

Mark, I also have Hi-Run tires and I do have the flexride axle.

Yes on the above - HI-RUN ST 205/75/D14 and Dexter axle.

The angle on a Dexter axle arm is set at the factory and cannot be adjusted. To change it you have to replace it.

Looks to me that there just isn't enough room in the wheel well for the size of the tire installed.

But as the Spanke family motto goes "We may be wrong, but we're never in doubt."

I gotta remember i'm rubbing elbows with a bunch of easterners...you guys get the jump on me with your early rising and yes the SciFi night was good. We can hardly wait to hit the theater for the new Star Trek.

Yuppers:
HI-RUN ST 205/75/D14

and though i don't know the model number of axle though i would imagine it is the same as Brian's #34 and Mark's #37.

(Post script note...i just now saw the above post by Spanke, must have posted as i was composing this thought: )

I remember reading over at the ExpeditionPortal.com forum about a guy that had some adjustments made to his dexter by the manufacturer at time of order, something to do with making the trailing arm's angle greater so it came with more ground clearance...i have no idea if that is an available post-delivery type adjustment or not.
