Anyone successfully mount left front tires on the 5" wide with 3" backspace left front wheel?  With the older DWT wheels I would put the tire on over the outside edge because of the cone on the inside, but the Valken has a much thicker edge and I haven't been able to do that.  Before I contact Valken and send these wheels back I figured I would throw it out here.  I haven't seen any of these wheels at our track so I couldn't really get any input there.  I have ruined three tires so far trying to get them to mount up.

That wheel will work but it will fight you all the way(it took me about 15 min. to mount)

Did you go over the outside of the wheel or the inside of it?

I bought 2 Valken wheels at beginning of season for left side. The LF will not fit on our stanley axle/hub because the inner cone is narrow on it. I called Valkin and they had no answer. Threw them in the trash and stuck with douglas wheels.
