Hi mate and a belated :welcome from me to the forum :shame

As I'm sure you've discovered the T40 is a very capable sib however it's brute for weight :idea:
You've not the trim tabs to deal with so I'd be fitting some of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Launching-Wh ... SwTm9Z9E14 easy to deploy/retract :thumbsup
There was another supplier with an option for a leg extension which could've allowed you to run in to port with your OB in the down position however following this recent thread viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2617 maybe not such a good idea :|
:cheers

The eBay ones that Paul has linked to are the wheels I bought for my Frib, the fleabay company has been trading for a good while now and they seem ok to deal with.
I bought the standard wheels and then bought the longer versions as the short versions wouldn’t allow me to drop my outboard right down (comes in handy when setting up.)
The short ones were great quality, the longer ones were a bit shabby on the welding- I shortened the excess stub axle and then got them re-welded.

Have a good measure before you buy any.
I believe a good few guys have bought these wheels now.
F-RibsAndSibs.Com.... :whistle
Because it's a big old WWworld out there :mrgreen:

The eBay ones mentioned are the ones I have just fitted.
They are good quality and easily removable for packing up the SIB after use.

I managed to fit them quite low down and I can get the outboard all the way down (provided I don’t lift the bow) which, as Martin said, really helps with setup.

I posted some pics and details: :Link

Hope this helps. :thumbsup
Not a complete idiot - some parts are missing.
