  • Tires...

    Old subject, I'm sure, but I'm looking at my poor chicken-stripped rear Dunlop and thinking I'll need to replace it soon. Size matters, and right now I run stock 140-80 16 rubber. With the 3" wide stock rim, how big can I spoon on before I run into trouble??? I've already decided 120-60 16 will work nice up front, so how about 160-60 16 on the rear?> Or would 150-70 be more prudent...

        you'll be ok with 160/60 on the rear max. i run 120/60 front and 160/60 rear dunlop sportmaxx. if you want to go wider than 160 you can.............as long as you get a new set of rims with it
