there are some places that have this tool that acts as a rim. it's like an adjustable arm that will adjust to the wheel size to fit the tire, then bolts to the hub. its basically for testing fitment. i cant think of what its called.
but it really can't hurt to just go to the place and ask them if they can test fit the front tires on your Dub, to test the turning radius. I have one guy who i've asked if he wouldn't mind doing that one time and he said he would be more than willing to help me out with putting a tire up there just to test it out. Most of the bigger companies will do something like this. like tire discounters.
They just have to be cautious bc you can still sell the tire as new if it hasnt been ran. they just have to watch to not rip the bead of the tire bc then its no longer an adjustable tire, you rip the bead you own it.
I'd just call or go in and ask them if they can bring them in, for a test fitment. if you get a cool enough guy, they wont mind at all. luckily these guys rely on me to sell them **** haha. so if i treat them well they are more likely to help me. just ask, the worst they can say is no, then youll just go to another place that wants to earn your business. but its less likely to happen especially when you are purchasing these tires. a lot of them will do anything they can to get the sale. just tell them you are going to purchase them, you just need to know which size will fit. once they know its a sure thing they will make the sell, they will be all for it. Their extra pay can sometimes rely on a sale like this. plus it makes them look good to their managers.
