bead width

Post  ole bob on Thu Jan 15, 2009 7:49 am

hello to all, glad i found this site. i am confused about something i read while looking thru this site, maybe you can help. the grabber tire is supposed to work on the 1300c wheel. this tire should go on a 5 to 7'' wheel. the 1300 is 3.5'' ok i got this. but in the site it said to look for the narrowest bead width on a tire, like 4''. so, does this mean to go through individual grabber tires and find one that has the most narrow bead width?thanks in advance.[i]

If you're talking about the same brand, model, and size tire, the bead widths will all be exactly the same. Some may look narrower from having been squashed on the bottom of the pile, but it makes no difference for mounting.

the grabber uhp 205/ 70r15 is a great fit and will work on the vtx1300c without mods
