Rear Tyres, not always as they seem.

Rear Tyres, not always as they seem.

Post by Grasshopper on Sun 17 Aug 2014, 23:47

Hi, It all started when I cut the rear fender (sorry mudguard) off my dragstar 1100 Custom and decided to fit a fat tyre.
I fitted a 200 Avon Viper, which was exactly 200 mm /8 inches wide, but it was about 5mm too wide.
I then fitted a nearly new 180 Metzeler, that came up at 170mm, on or off the bike.
Next was a Dunlop 180 D404, that came up at 160mm wide.
I now finally have a 200 Metzeler Marathon 880, that comes up at 173mm wide with a 120 Avon on the front.
So only the Avon 200 and Avon 120 does what it says on the tin.
I told my Landlord, I cant pay the rent as my money is tied up in Tyres.
