    new tires for my 1800c vtx

    I own a 2003 honda 1800c vtx and am trying to find a comparable tire to replace my dunlop front and rear front tire size is 130/70r 18 63h,my rear tire is a 180/70r 16 77h.My question is can i put a larger tire on this bike without modifying the rims.I have been looking at j.c.whitney tires because they are considerably cheaper than my dealers tires..What is the max tire i can run on this rim?without running into problems.I intend to order the new tires off the net and i want to be sure they will fit.Any help would be appreciated.

    With the 1800c you can go up to a 200mm rear tire. The front I am not sure of. There are several tire manufactors that make a 200. It does look awesome.
    Here are a photo or 2
    This is on a 1300c but it is using the 1800c rear wheel, they call it the foots mod, this will give you a idea how it looks

    Why not take a trip to the Darkside? I 'm there after putting on a cooper zeon 205/55/16 saved $100.oo got the look I wanted and will probably get 25,000/30,000 miles on the back tire going with the elite 3 for the front if it ever get's here ED

    Dirtdobber -- I really like the look of the 200mm tire on your 1800C. Do you know the max width for my '05 1800R?
