I was going to install a car tire but a friend offered me an Excedra 240/55zr -16 that he took off a bike he sold.

It only has a few hundred miles on it and wants $70 for it.

Will this tire fit my V2K ?

That sounds awfully wide given the space you have to work with, I'm a little worried about trying to lever on a 225/60R16 on mine, again worried about the width. A lot of guys seem to be running a 205 with good luck and few if any mods to make sure it doesn't hit anything.

I have a 240 on the rear and fits just fine, it is the width of the plastic mud guard under the rear fender.
In fact I suspect one could go even wider because there is enough clearance around it although any wider and you may need to stiffen the rear suspension because it will start rubbing against the rear fender support brackets underneath.
