    wider? or a taller type tire wider would actually depend on your fender width how much weight when you or even a passenger are on it bottomin out a bit on dips in the illustrious roads that we have to travel down also the stock size tire works just fine for me after ten years of riding but if wider is what you want take what i wrote in determining your tire size

If you go above a 140 you will have issues with brake caliper and rubbing the belt. Hope this helps.

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

What is the widest front tire 19inch that I can safely install on my 2002 dyna fxd cast wheel?


I would not suggest going more than 10mm over factory. In this case 110/90 19. Any rubbing generates heat, and then you're going to ride into the danger zone.....

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

Can i fit wider tire on rear of 98 RSTD


There are some practical limitations to how much larger the tires in the rear can be - the clearance between the sidewall of the existing tire and the torque tube (driveshaft housing) AND the width of the wheel (15X4"). I measured the distance between the widest part of the sidewall and the torque tube, and found it to be 15.8mm. To allow a little clearance (very little, indeed) the new tire can be as wide as 180mm. Now, that's a pretty decently sized tire...

Before you begin to get too excited, though, remember the SECOND limitation? The rim is only 4" wide. If you check tire charts, you'll discover that for each inch of rim width, you can only accommodate 40mm of tire width. 4 times 40mm equals a maximum of 160mm. You're now, unfortunately, left with a maximum sectional width of 160, therefore, the largest tires you can mount are 160/90-15's or 160/80-15's. An Internet search will reveal that 160/90-15 are nonexistant, and only three manufacturers offer 160/80-15's - Metzler (ME880), Bridgestone (G702) and Maxxis (M6011).

Sounds not to good, huh? Actually, if you calculate the height of the stock 150/90-15, it comes up to 167mm (6.575 in.), total wheel/tire diameter of 28.15 inches; the height of the 160/80-15 calculates out to 200mm (7.875 in.), total wheel/tire diameter of 30.75 inches. That'll make an awful lot of difference in how your odometer registers...

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

Dyna Wide Glide Rear Tire


i called a place ( hogpro.com) about wheels for my 07 fxdwg and talked to the guy there. he said a 180 will fit with no problems and a 200 will fit in the swingarm and fender, you just have to center the wheel and deal with the turn signal brackets etc. Does anyone know where i can get a set of rear struts that are just plain with no recess for the turn signals that will bolt on to the stock bike? I am gonna try the 200/55-18 this winter on a 18x 5.5" wheel.

Tire replacement


but whats the widest size tire I can safely mount on the stock rims. Have seen it posted somewhere that I could mount a 4.10/19 on these. That would probably smooth out the ride a little bit. But just wondering if it would start clearance issues. When you need a wider tire you really need a better tire. Try the Avon AM26. Rear 100/90-19. Front 90/90-19. These will transform your bike.,
