they ain't cheap ... most go to a 200 Metzler or Pirelli which requires no modification. You can go to a Avon 230, but you will have to do a little modification to the rear fender liner and belt guard. Still, these options are a lot cheaper than a new rim and a tire kit.

The other option for a fatty, is to go dark side (a car tire), this has its own ++++'s and -------"s .... do a search on here, theres lots of info.

BTW ... welcome to the forum.

As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said

Did you follow through with a fat tire kit, what did you go with and how did it turn out?

I wanted more tire in the back and went darkside, no modifications needed

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting
"WHAT A RIDE!"
