Hoping to get some advice...

Back when i started my build i got a good deal on shinko tires. I'm on major budget and 35$ each for new 705's seemed too good to pass up.

I bought 4 inch low profile...

...but the actual dimension is 4.55 inches wide (unmounted).

Will they be a bit thinner mounted on the rim?

Are they way too wide to use? Should i even bother putting them on the rim ?

4 inch was supposed to be about 100-102 mm. ... i got 115 mm actual

They sure look wide.

You should check the date stamp. What does the tire say it is for size.
It says 4.10. (Manufactures 2017)

In English 4.10 is a 4 inch low-profile.

And the specifications say 4-inch nominal, 4.05 actual.

Im realizing that must be a miss print and its 4.5 or 4.55 actual.

But i have what i have now ... question is ... can i maoe it work.

Rims are both WM3

What bike are you putting them on? If it is a 350/360/450 DOHC the issue will be fitting them in the swing arm. Back in the day I ran 4.00 inch tires on my CB360T. It fit, but took care when adjusting the chain tension to ensure the wheel was straight. Otherwise it would rub. The tire will get a little narrower once it is mounted and inflated. Keep us posted.

On my 1971 Cl350 there was a 4.0-18 on the rear it cleared decently. don't know about 4.10 though

however, if you plan on mounting this size on the front with stock forks beware there is less room.

In english measure 4.1 is a 4 inch tire with 80% profile instead of 100.
