I saw the Avon Distenzia tires in another thread and loved the look and rider feedback.

Anyone know what is the widest tire to fit the stock rim. I can trim the tab and remove or mod the chain guard as necessary ti fit.

Thanks

I run a Teraflex, and its about as big as you can get. Huge nobs, mad traction, but raises the rear about an inch over stock. I have over 750mi on mine and its about 200-300mi before shot.

Pics in my garage if you wanna see one fit.

140/90-18 or 5.10-18, street or dirt for the rear tire. If you can find anything larger or if your chain hasn't stretched very much yet, some custom knob trimming may be in order..

The DISTANZIA was only available in 120 for the rear :D

So I bought a set anyway because I really dig the looks of that tire.

Now if they only made it fatter :D
