the tire will run out the same regardless. and the ME880 is the only 210 out. Basically your choices are 240 and above or 200 and below

You only have enough room on the original swingarm for a 210. Changing the wheel width would also alter your hub position.
Though it would be possible to add another 1/2" in width to the wheel, cost wise it would be better to upgrade to a 240 swingarm and wheel width.
The 210 has a history of short life on our OE wheel.

Guys.. Where are you getting this .
While I agree upgraing to 240 is the way to go .. He's asking about 210..

I'm not sure the exact stock width .. I think it's 6" so another 1/2" would be a rounder profile on the 210.. That's what kills it.. On the stock wheel its egg shaped

Kyle hit it right on the head. The 210 needs another 1/2" wider rim. The stock Warrior rim is 6", I believe. I think I saw in on the Metzler website, they recommend mounting the 210 on a 6.5" wide rim. Don't quote me on that, though.

Incidentally, you could have your wheel widened 1/4" on each side, keeping the same 17" diameter for $400. Then, you'd have a longer wearing 210, with no need for any swing arm modification.

Unless you are looking to upgrade to a 240+, I would stick to the stock wheel. Your choices are the 200 or the 210 for the stock wheel. It doesnt make sense to drop the coin on a new wheel just to fit a 210.

They look good, but youre going to have to modify the rear swingarm to fit it. Youre looking at a couple grand when its all said and done. Search for 240 kit in the galleries and you will see a ton of pics. They look good, but they cost some serious money.
