There's a whole list of tires and sizes on our "How To;Step-by-Step" board and on the "Darkside" website here; http://mcdarksiders.forumotion.com/index.htm

I have a 2006 1800S and am using a 205-65/15. I swapped the spoked wheel for a cast aluminum wheel.

205 but some are a tighter fit due to tread design.

And sidewall thickness. Once the tire is on the rim, deflate to install on the bike, then re-inflate.
