Largest Front Tire on a 1800c?

Post  VTX Mojo on Fri May 07, 2010 12:16 pm

Need to replace my front tire again. Cant decide which one. been looking at several. I would like to run a rear MT on the front and wanted to know what is the biggest one someone has managed to get on the front of a C model. Currently it has a Metz 880 130/70-18.

Just so you are aware about putting a rear tire on the front. We had to step up one size in the Bridgestone S11 Spitfire to do it and it hit the fender on the 1800 C model. So we removed the fender and re-drilled the holes lower on the rear bracket and added a small piece of flat metal to extend the front and we are all good now. See Buddha1800's post.

A while back someone was happy with another Bridgestone rear up front on an 1800C, Battlax BT-45 140/80V18. 26.8"x5.6"
It's slightly shorter and wider than the Spitfire 130/90, but needs only minor fender mods, like elongating bracket holes.
