Post  13gator69 on Sat May 23, 2009 9:49 am

I have a VTX 1800C, read alot about those who run car tires, I was told it couldn't be done, well I'm tired of being like everyone else.My bike is just stock nothing special.Does it matter which brand of tire I get, I heard that 205/60/16 fits real well,I checked out some & prices to go.Appreciate any help I can get,Thanks

Most 205/65/16's fit well, with no mods, are slightly taller than a 60 or stock MT, and will make speedo more accurate. The Michelin HydroEdge is well proven and very popular with Darksiders.

So do you have to jack the bike up and lower the bike on to the tire? On 2003 1800c

welcome, no. not on a C, you might have to deflate the tire or pull the grey trim ring off to help it slide in in there easier though...
