    On DD it may be a little too much but I run a spool on the street. It's not that bad. In parking lots people say they can be a pain but I won't park my car in a parking lot so I wouldn't know. But as far as driving a car with a spool in it, it's not that bad. If you are wanting to put one in a 10 bolt forget about it.

    No definetly not a 10 bolt, 9" or 12bolt. What is the problem with them in the parking lot?

    In most parking lots you make tight turns. Beings both axles are moving at the same speed the inside tire will either have to spin or hop. Spools can also be tough on tires if you do this very often. But when I go anywhere that has a parking lot I take my other car. I wouldn't take it out anywhere that I would have to leave it parked though.
