    I'am running a 205 65 15 goodyear tt. I don't think you can get a bigger tire on it without a mod.

    For MC tire, 200 is max. But save your money and stick with stock size. If you're interested in something different, do a search on this site for "Darkside".

    Can do a 180 and gain very little (also lose tread depth I believe). A 200 is a waste of money as mentioned above. If the car tire is not your thing, do a search for the Foots Mod. It involves putting an 1800 rear wheel on the bike and then a 200 tire is worth the money. Good luck with your decision!

    hope this helps... as stated above 180 0r 200 on the stock really will not gain anything... but foots does.

    200 / 50 r18

    A friend of mine has a tire (200 /50 R18) that he is giving me if it fits. I have a 2004 VTX 1300c. Does anyone know if this tire will fit on my stock wheel?

    Thanks,

    No it won't. The rear on a 1300 is 15".

    I am trying to get the fattest back tire and lower the rear of my 06 vtx 1300C? What is the best and Cheapest way to do it? The 1800 rear wheel is a 16"? So what size tire should I get? I want to get the 10.5" lowering shocks or do I not need to with getting a 1800 wheel and tire?

    Steph, a member here and on the "other" board, installed a 230/60/15 tire on his C. He did so with very little modding.

    I think there is a thread here on the cafe. Found it.

    http://www.vtxcafe.com/showthread.php?t=48647 A pic of his bike is in that thread.

    Here is the thread on the "other" board that showed the how to.
