    I've been searching on matching up the front and the rear wheels for my 60. I think the front sticks out about an extra inch than the rear. Does anyone have any experience or input with making both OEM wheels FLUSH with each other?

    I've noticed this as well. I have a set of 1.5 spacers all the way around, and I installed the rear first. With the spacers on the back, the rear stuck out more than the front, so I know you will need less than 3" total to get it looking right. I'm not sure of the axle widths, but it may just be the way the body is designed that causes the "Illusion".
