Wide tire on Night Train

I want to put a wider tire on my 01 Night Train but would like to avoid the costly wide tire kit and stick with my stock fender and swingarm. Can anyone tell me how wide i can go with the stock parts and what kinds of easy mods I could make to go a little wider.

2001 Vulcan 1500 Classic E. Can I put a wider back tire on and if I can how wide can I go?


talk this over with a bike shop that sells rims and tires
there are several things to consider
ride characteristics change dramatically with different tire widths
legal ramifications of different front and rear tires
real advantages of wider tires as against "looks cool"
costs of new rim and wider tire against standard tires
modification plates for the wider tire
Talk it over with an accredited bike shop and find a person that has real experience and not just a salesman

Can i put a bigger than stock tire on my 2006 suzuki gxs600f katana


By bigger I assume you mean wider. I would not run any size tire on a motorcycle the wheels were not designed for. An oversized tire will be too wide, and as result will not have the profile it was designed for. It will also negatively affect your handling, making the bike harder to lean into turns.

What is the widest tire fitment for rear 2004 1200 roadster?


I really don't know how wide you can go but I never recommend going any wider than the stock tire without modifying the bike to accept a wider tire. The problems you will run into is rubbing the final drive belt and the tire rubbing under the fender when you hit a bump. I'd stay with the original size tire.

Good Luck

I have a Jeep 1994, tires are (P235/75 R15) Want


I did a quick calculation and found that the 245/70R-16s are 29.50 inches in diameter and a little more than 9.6 inches wide. The max for a stock ZJ is 30 inches diameter and about 10 inches wide; so they might rub a little, both on the LCAs during a tight turn and the wheelwell during full compression.

They will give you another inch or so ground clearance than the 245/70R-15s you have now. However, the lug pattern for the 16 in rims might not match; the stock ZJ pattern is 5 on 4.5 inches. You might have to use adaptor spacers to match the lug pattern on the 16in rim, which might be a good thing; the spacers will keep the tires off the LCAs.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

Rough ride due to skinny shallow front tire. What is the largest tire that I can put on that wheel. I am willing to put a bigger fender on the bike in order to make a bigger tire fit.


the stock vulcan 800a comes with a 80/90-21, the first number is the width in mm, and the second number is the side wall ratio compared to height, the third number is the rim size. ex. the tire is 80mm wide and 90% as tall or 72mm on a 21" rim. So if you are going wider I would measure the distance between the forks in mm and go from there.

Will a 225/60 15 tire fit on my cutlass supreme


They should fit but they are alot wider than the original tires. They will likely hit the frame when you make a hard turn so you will have to adjust your parking skills accordingly. You should double check the width of the rear wheel wells although there should be enough room to clear the bigger tires. You should get a wider 8" rim intead of the stock 7" and the wide rim will have to be offset so the extra inch is on the inside of the car. Hope this helps.

What is the widest size back tire tire for a 2001 widel glide.


I believe it is a 160 stock so you could go 180 using a stock rim, making sure that you check the clearances underneath, especially where the top shock mounts meet the fender if it is going to be close it will be there. If you want to go bigger than that there are a number of kits to put massive tires on the back. Changing a tire to more than 200 WILL change the handling of the bike

XLH frame,want to put wide tire kit on ?


Wide tire kits can be added to this frame but you will need to run an extended drive sprocket and altered sprocket cover, or a jack shaft drive system to do it. In my opinion it's more trouble than its worth.
