Will this end up on E-bay?

Check this bad boy out...
I bought the biggest size that they make, 140/80-18.
I SWEAR that I have heard guys saying that they have stuffed that size on their bikes, but I cannot confirm.
Will it shoe-horn on there?
I sure hope so....

Can you post of photo of it when you get it mounted on the bike? I'd be interested to see how it fits/looks.

On the other hand, when that thing arrives I might not be able to wait........
That tire is made by the same company that make the SuperSwampers and Thornbird's for big muddin' rigs. Did I say the price? It was $80 bones to my door. Thought that was pretty competitive.

Is that the DOT version? And are you going to try one on the front, too? Keep us posted how it works.

why do you use so big tires (140).
I'm very happy with the traction I'm getting with my 100/100/18 or 120/xx/18? Do I miss something here?

"Damn, that is a big tire", "Your gonna be dredging new rivers with that thing" and the such. This tire is big!
But, the tire is not heavy as previously thought. It feels fairly light, but I have not put it on a scale.
And, for those still wondering, it is DOT APPROVED!
Looking at that 606, I don't think it will be long until I mount this thing.....

Damn... that thing is SEXY... I love how it's got lotsa space in between the knobs... bet she rides much better in soft stuff. However, bet she wears-out real fast with street miles.

You will be happy, but the tire size is limited....
