I sure do like the looks of the fat rear tire but The stock H-D dont come equiped with one so I was wondering if I was tyo have one put on how it would affect the handling if any...

Would the oversized tire affect the performance in the turns...

What are the pros and cons on the super sizing of the rear tire???

Thanks

Anyting over a 180 tire has a different lean in & out that make it harder to handle.

Putting on a real big back tire can cost upwards of $2500, may wnat to drive it for a while then decide.

How big did you want to go?

I was thinking the 230-250 would look awsome on it

That will require major mods to get to fit, your talking at $3500 extra to do it depending on what model you get.

It looks cool but does cost $$$

<pre>From what I have read and heard from people that own a fat tired bike, there is only one reason to run it.
Looks.
It handles like crap, doesnt want to turn right, sucks HP, costs $$$$ to replace the tire but damn it looks cool!
If you own more Dockers than Levis its the way to go. (from what I have seen)</pre>
