Got a Metzeler Karoo 3 for the back tire. It’s chunkier than I thought. Looks like a tractor tire...

Yep.  They're curved slightly on an english wheel.

Hey irk!Killer build you got going on...I´ve been thinking about building an english wheel on my own...Did you buy yours?Do you have any recommendations concerning size and such?

Thanks!

I bought mine from Bradj here on DTT.  He bought a set of wheels from Harbor Freight, then made the frame himself. It's a bench top unit that you work towards the bench.  It's not very big, maybe about 60cm or so deep.  I'm pretty limited on size of sheet.  I wish it was much, much bigger- at least double the size that it is and I wish I could change the direction I work on it.

I decided to keep the stock bits at the back of the bike. The frame is made for it all and the rear rack is perfectly functional. All I had to do was fill a gap where the XL seat doesn’t go all the way to the rack like the stock seat did...

Looks good.
You could even pad it and upholster it as an extra pillon cushion.

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.
