Rim Rim Guard Gap

Again, the same Krawler and aluminum wheel, but now with the rim guard facing the outside. That's a pretty darn large gap between the rim and rim guard, and it goes for about 200 degrees. Any dirt trapped on that shelf doesn't necessarily fall out, which is probably why we hear that BFGs and other tires with rim guards can need frequent cleaning on the trail.
