I have all the wheels off my imp and the rubber off the wheels but if memory serves I think the top spring could touch the sidewall. Has anyone used the solid tire above? I wonder how wide it is and if you can get them in slicks? I am guessing the solid tire would be a rougher ride.

I received the Fall Line slick, it is about a 1/2 inch narrower than the original Goodyear tire and seems a hair taller. You also need inner tubes with them but I can't find inner tubes that take 105 PSI like the tire needs. Probably have to buy them from Fall Line too. The side wall seems about the same as the original Goodyear tire. The tire that had the toughest sidewall was the PrimeX SpeedLine one, it was a real PITA to get on/off the wheel but it is also the one that lost it's sidewall integrity and became "pregnant". Maybe the one I has was defective but the effort it takes to get it on/off the wheel makes me not want to find out, despite having a new one on hand.

I am not sure what to do for tires, I expected the Falline tore to be more substantial.

Be aware that Carlisle has different models of 6 ply 4.80x8 tires. One of them (I can't remember which name) has too large an overall diameter and it hits the square tube that the springs mount on. It doesn't work on Imps. Check the O.D. specs before purchasing a set
Also, there are different densities of foam fill. Typical farm applications use a softer foam for a smoother ride but that soft foam when used on snowcats is what causes sidewall flex, wear, and destruction. The tire is not the culprit in that case.

Here's a "don't buy these" tip.
I recently replaced 6 tires and tubes on my Imp. I thought I was being special and bought inner tubes with curved metal valve stems. Don't do it. They hit ice buildup on the leaf springs and undercarriage, ripping them off. Two flat tires minutes apart were the result. Stick to the short rubber valve stems. Just my $.02.
