    put the wheels in the oven at 400 degrees and then in my press and the adapters popped right off. I would imagine a 1979 Piper Super Cub came originally with 800x6 tires on 6" Cleveland wheels.

    I don't see a need for larger bottom longerons. Later fuselages have a few more diagonals where I have seen people bend the tail and the Atlee Dodge H or Univair X in the tail has fixed that.
