I have a 1700 Nomad and in about another 1000 miles I plan on having a 205/70x16 Goodyear Assurance installed on the back. The smallest clearance is about 0.095 where the belt passes the tire. The byproduct of this change as it will match the speedo with the GPS.Was curious if anyone has any feedback if they have switched their stock
rear 170's to a wider 190 or 200? The V2000 has a 200 width that comes stock on it and I believe it also fits on the 1700 classic.. thx
Have you rode a bike with a car tire??? Doesn't sound like it. You're welcome to your opinion though.It will also lower mileage, reduce maneuverability and acceleration while increasing straight line stability. Why? Additional rolling resistance will reduce mileage, wider tires require a wee bit more lean, the larger contact patch is more stable in a straight line and requires more force to spin the tire due to greater contact resistance. IMHO... But it will look good!
