I had these 3 size tires on hand last week and thought I would post a side by side pic for everyone to reference.


From left to right, Metz 240 / Metz 210 / Stock 200

I've been meaning to ask you, is that pic photoshopped to make the bikes toward the left look taller and wider? No offenseI'm just curious because when I see a group of Warriors on a ride, I've never noticed the whole bike (front and rear) sits that much higher and the bike looks bigger and even wider. In 'real life' the rear tire looks a little taller because it is. But the front height, and the bars, sit the same height in 'real life'.


Or am I imagining

My 240 is not photochopped either but at certain angles, especially with the rear lowered, the rear looks really fat!
See what I mean!

OK I see that now. That makes more sense. Thanks

Thanks for the tire size comparison photo. It's the very angle I have been looking for. My stock tire is almost shot, so will be deciding this winter on what size to put on, and this helps.

Hello fellows, new to the sight. I will be buying a 02' warrior from a co worker in a couple of weeks. It will need a new tire in the near future. He currently has a 210 on it. What is the widest tire I can fit on the rear on a stock rim and swing arm? Thanks in advance and I look forward to actively participating on this great site...

The 210 is the largest tire you can fit on the stock rim and swingarm.Search around some and you will find oodles of info on the wide tire kits. Do a search for "DIY 240" and you will find good information.

OK man I think I wll check it out however everything on the back end is already chromed including the swingarm and rim so I don't wanna spend allot money right off the bat to get the wide look. Old lady is bitching enough as it is with me just buying the bike. She's the reason I'm buying the bike, to get away from her and get some piece of mind with the wind in my face. Can I get and Amen....


Thanks

aaaaaaaaaaamen smoove001. But, my wife told me to buy my warrior. Little did she know about this bug that floats around called MOD.


I will be going to a 210 when my 200 goes away. Not really sure how much the handling will change with a wide kit. Plus, it all a matter of what you like.


Ride safe.
