If I remember correctly mine caught up in the wheel wells when I did it while I was waiting for my prebent struts. In my opinion the pre bents are the way to go. With my pre bents I bent them a little also. The axle comes 90 degrees to the strut. The strut is at an angle this makes the wheels contact the ground at an angle. I bent mine to make the axles parallel to the ground which puts the wheels straight up and down which makes for better rolling. This was necessary for me since I fly off grass, off of pavement however I never had a problem.
