    Phat tire upgrade

    Does anyone make a Phat tire upgrade for the M-50 yet? Something around a 240 size.

    It's not going to be easy!

    The Harley guys only have to widen the swing arm and add a spacer. It's going to be extremely hard to do with the drive shaft,if not impossible without costly reengineering.

    i share your vision Everett and then add a 150 front tire on top of it. the 150 will fit on the front, but i a gree with dragonrider about the costly rear.

    Would love to see that 200 on there, and what sort of clearance there is left on the driveshaft.

    don...there was a good thread on the 200 tire about a year ago on here, had pics and such. it fits...however, looking at the stock clearance, it has to be pinching in a little or it would rub. i went with a 180 when i needed a new rear tire )

    find that thread here in the M50 folder if you want pics and more info than i just gave

    don i had a 200 Avon Venom on mine and it rubbed the driveshaft. i have heard that the Avon is wider at the shoulder than the metzler. like pinhy i went with the 180 metzler this time. i will try the 200 metzler next time. the 200 fills in the area a little better.

    Yeah outlaw, I even found your old post about the 200 avon venom after reading through what came up in search. I still have quite a ways to go before I'll be needing a tire but good knowledge to have ahead of time.
