I think I have the room but I don't want to buy another set of wheels right now. They ain't cheap. Plus I screwed up a second time by not changing bolt pattern.

Are MT ET drags spec'd at theoretical diameter at speed? I ask because they are most often shorter than spec by an inch or more.
A friend has 3068Ws, and they are not much over barely 30" less than 96 circ. [31.3 spec]. I'm looking at both, but if the 3069Ws are way shorter than spec, I...
