    Pressure Recovery Wheel Pants

    I bought the sam james rv-10 pants for my 6.00 x 6 tires. Having cut them out and fitted them, they look fine. I too had bought the Vans RV-10 pants, but sold them because they were HUGE.

    Canopy Pressure Force

    Thanks guys. I do have an existing retaining mechanism that I will now keep; I thought it was a little too beefy so was looking for something lighter. I knew there was force acting upon the canopy, but I didn't realize it was so significant.
