Hey folks, just a quick question. I have an 05 Midnight Warrior. It came stock with a 200 width tire. I am just wondering what is the widest tire you can put on without having to modify the swingarm and suspension. I am going to ride the tire out for its lifespan, so I have time to consider the options. Thanks in advance folks.

actually the widest I have seen without proof of mods is Lilswole's Bike.

If you do a search on rim size and lil swole you will bring up a post where tmade I think said that the wheel is stock and so is the swingarm. The tire he has on his bike is a 235/40r17 car tire. Bourget did this on one of his choppers back in 1993 when there weren't all these huge tires out on the market. I am considering trying it out just to see the difference. Used tire shop around the way sells some hot tires with cool looking tread for 20$ a piece... well see. Hope this helps.

This has been covered many times. Remember to try searching. The safest and largest you can and should put on with the stock swing arm is a 210. As far as I know only one manufacturer makes it in that size and it is Metzler. I have it also and the tire looks good on the bike IMO.
