Rear tire that is......

Just wondering. Am I limited to what is currently on there, or am I able to squeeze on some more size? Who doesn't love the look of the big fat rear tire. ohhhhh yeahhh...

I recently asked same thing in a similar way and was told by a couple board members that a 180 is the biggest that will fit on a stock rim. 8)

Metzeler makes a 200/60/15 but I think the Avon 170/15 looks fatter. Check the Foots mod thread to do a 200 on an 1800 rear rim. That's about as wide as you can go without modifying the swing arm. Or you can go bigger bucks and do a 240 kit.

There's pics and parts lists on this thread:
