re

180 will fit - you can even go 200 on a 5" wheel but you can't air it up till its on the bike
and a 200 will only get taller and ends up looking like a 180

i still don't think there is any perfromance gain just looks :wink:

re

190 will fit also but it really should have a 6" wheel :wink:

I too was bitin by the wide tire bug, I have a 200 on my meanstreak with the stock rim. I have 3000mi on the tire with no problems other than it it is only about 3/4 to 1 inch widder so it wasn't worth the extra cost. money wasted :lol:

i like the rear of the meanie as it is , i dont want a fat rear on em . 180 rear tyre would be more than enough for me . i want to be able to hustle through the curve's not go over a cliff edge .
