Used to remember tire charts and what you could get away with in various applications...but danged if I can remember that stuff nowadays
A 1983 VT500C takes a 100/90-18 tire on the front, Rear is a 130/90-16, but how wide can one go, really??
I'd like to get a wider tire, but can't remember the formula to do so without having to change the fenders.
Also wish to go as wide as possible on the rear...knowing that the rear is hampered by the driveshaft...so a little guidance there as far as size doesn't hurt either
So the simple question is, who has gone to a wider size on a VT500C, what size was it, and how did it work out??
I've decided to go with either Shinko 230 Tour Master's, or Pirelli MT66's. So at least that part is easy.
My riding style is basic cruise, with occasional forays into sand and dirt.
Highly tempted to go DARKSIDE with the rear...but don't think one can with that dinky rear size...not to mention the clearance issues.
