Wow not sure how I fell out of this thread but I did not build my plane. The builder went to back country strips in Idaho and Montana and wanted the clearance for rough or gravel, strips. The wheel plants were fitted to the bigger tires, you cannot just change the tires if you fitted the original pants to the -15 tires.

Van’s pants will work if you drill and mount them around the bigger tires but be ware that re-treads may have an even larger diameter. I likely lose a knot or two but a grass strip in the summer in Florida can be a lake right after a deluge.

If I was more tech savvy I would share pictures…PM and I will email.
