Well, last week I got my first parts in for my mini-chopper:

1. 4.5" brake assembly
2. 60t sprocket w/ incorporated 4.5" brake drum
3. 5" Tri-Star rims
4. Turf-saver tire (4" wide, 10.7" diameter)

Think 10.7" is big enough for a mini chopper?

I think the size is good, especially if I wanted to sell it and the guy buying it wanted it for his kids, therefore he wouldn't want it to go 40+. And if I don't sell it, I can always put a bigger tire on, or a jackshaft.

That tire will work. My chopper has a 4" tire on it right now and it's too small -- i hit the chain on left turns. I've got a 5" and a slick that should arrive any day now from Northern.
