    Tracking measurement

    Can anyone tell me, in inches, what the inside tire measurement distance is from side to side on a bugeye? (for possible shipping info). Stock wheels/tires.

    So a close answer might be better than no answer. My '76 is about 43 inches.

    I used the Google and came up with this - hope it helps

    If you are thinking about a Tow Dolly they won't fit very well on the one UHaul Rents. Tell them you are towing an MGB. Don't forget to disconnect driveshaft. Leave it in the back of the tranny and wire up the Driveshaft out of the way. If you try to flat tow you'll ruin the tranny if rear wheels are on the ground.
