biggest is a 160 on the stock wheel (but that's really too big if you go by mfg's suggestions)

i run a 150 on mine and it does look better than the 140 -but i felt the 160 was overkill
:wink:

iaminsman,
i put larger tires on my meanstreak and actually didn't gain anything, just a little widder than stock on stock rim. when it is time for new tires I'm going back with stock size. I think now that the engineers designed these bikes with a certain tire size for a reason.
I'm running Dunlop 208's

i agree with vapor-i'll go back to stock next time - there is really no advantage other than look

metzler and michelin are my 2 favorites for my type of riding :wink:
