Tire width question

Post  Bulldogparts on Sun Mar 01, 2009 12:25 pm

I'm going Dark soon. Also, I'm gonna build a hitch UNDER the fender. Does anyone know of a GOOD tire in the 185-195 width range for an 03 1800R, which factory specs calls for 180/70-16? I'm having trouble finding one close in anything larger than a 15" rim size.

Dude,

I would go with the 205....it's only 10mm wider which is less than a 1/8" on each side. That shouldn't kill you idea and you would have a lot more tire options!

Isn't a 205 25mm wider than a 180? I was just trying to go by what a lot of guys have said on here about the side clearance, since I am wanting to add a hidden hitch. I guess it's gonna be trial and error, but I'm gonna make it work somehow. Thanks
