Hello Everyone!
What is the widest rear tire i can put on my 14 VN900 (Not Custom), without doing any surgery to the rear end? I Have my stock rear tire size on my bike now, but i personally think putting a wider tire on the back would make the bike look better. If i can't get away with a wider tire, what are my options with putting a wider tire on the rear end?


Thank you to everyone in advance! :smile2:

I don't know your options, but a wider tire will exact a penalty on handling and fuel economy. The most popular rear tire swap here is to a 170/80/16, which is a pencil width narrower than stock but taller, yielding a higher speed for a given RPM, partially correcting the built-in speedometer error.

Some people on this list run real fatties, I think as in your case mostly for looks. More power to em... Do a search; you will find threads on this. :nerd:
