200 tire

Has anyone put a 200-60-16 on a 1600 nomad?

If so how did it work out?

Thanks

I would say not too well by the amount of responses you got, lol.

I don't think there is enough room there to do that and there is a bit more work to make the room since the drive shaft housing is part of the swing arm on those bikes. I don't know, never done it. Those bikes came with a 170 or so rear tire? so that is about an extra 1.5 inches in width?

Smile 200 tyre

Used to Run 180 on rear of 1600 classic ideal size, do not think 200 will fit as there was only 2 or 3 mm clearance with the 180/70/16 fitted
