I have an 18 bandsaw and and 12 in among others and the 18 inch is similar as you described, not by much but a little. it tracks slightly more forward on one than the other wheel. Its not been a problem for me and im tracking a 3/4 inch blade, timberwolf. where this can come to bit you is your rolller guides or cool blocks. the one will just need to be set forward a little. Another option if this still bugs you is to take off the bottom wheel and add a spacer to the bearing assembly, making the wheel come out more. hope this helps
