Default Disk brake/wheel compatibility.

Help! I've got a 1999 txt with 4" allsports lift and 10" wheels. I'd love to go with Scotty's rear manual brake kit but not sure if they'll work. Web site states "works with most 10" wheels, 4" backspace required)
My wheels (all sports HD brand) seem to have only 3" backspace measured from hub mount face to outside edge of bead.
Anyone try these brakes with allsports wheels?
Thanks guys!

Send it NUKE and have him use HIS magic powers of observation to see if the brakes will fit..... I can't. I think your posting is the best idea, see if somebody else with the same wheels has tried it or get some very accurate measurements.

LOL Scotty.....well if he would give you things like the actual dimensions....and you have the brakes, you MIGHT know if they would go. I'm just sayin.

other than that.....find some with the brakes on their cart, and have him try the wheels, either they will work or they won't.

Thanks guys,
If know one has experience with this brake and wheel combo. Then I guess I could always go with 1"wheel spacers to get the wheels out an extra 1" then I'd have the required 4" backspace. I'll check on them.

FYI carts unlimited rear disk brake kit worked for me!
For anyone out there with American lift/allsports lift HD brand 10" wheels.
THEY FIT!!
My 10" wheels measured only 3" backspacing and Scotty's disk brake kit fit perfectly.
These are my wheels

Hope this helps out someone in future
Thanks Scotty!
