Largest street tire for XR650L

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

Anyone?

Anyone? :D

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..

Dayuum that is a big azz knobby. :D

I gotta go with something a little more streetable tho, as 90% of my riding will be expressway and turnpike.

Thanks Dual_Dog. :D

I will go look at some 140-150 street tires this weekend. :D

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
