cooper zeon 2xs

Post  bs1800 on Wed Jul 09, 2008 1:27 am

It was mentioned that smokin joe runs this tire and I believe hes on a valk and a buddy of mine ran it on his valk before. The Zeon 205/55/16 specs say it is 8.4" wide were most other tires are 8.2" wide.
Will that extra .2" keep me from putting it on an 1800c.
This tire is 1 of about 6 tires that Im looking at and probably the cheapest but I would rather not grind anything off the fenders and swingarm to put it on.

I do know this with the 1800 and 205's, some darksides are really tight. Some of those guys on here will have to give you more advice on if it will fit!

The 8.4" width is probably when mounted on a 6.00" rim. Check the measuring rim in the specs. Since your using a 5.00" rim, the tires section width will be less. General Tire's formula is, .2" tire section width change for every .5" measuring rim width. So using these figures, 8.0" would be the final result, at max PSI. My tire specs. are 8.7" s.w. on a 6.50" rim, and only the raised letters were rubbing the swingarm at 51 PSI, on the stock 5.00", 1800C wheel, and with a low profile 55 series, the widest point of the tire will end up further back on the swingarm, where there's even more room. Your swingarm and fender will be fine, and I don't believe that tire will go up into the fender enough to need any fender brace mods either. Good luck!
