What model do you have....R,N,C,F, or an S? That determines what we give you for a darkside.

A 205/65/16 will fit your C. A lot of guys like the Goodyear Triple Tred or the Michelin Hydroedge.

I'm finding the Goodyear Trippletread 205/60/16R to have better response
than the Michelin HE 205/65/16R. IMHO

I am currently using the GYTT 205-60-16 and it handles GREAT, w/ 3oz of Dynabeads for balancing. What a Face

My only warning is that you may need to chop the "Ears" off of the fender support bracket... i did, it was rubbing on one side of my 200mm Metzler M/C tire when i mounted that, Not too hard to doo, you just have to be carefull. Shocked

before lopping anything off, IF there is any rubbing, loosen all 6 rear fender mount bolts a little and push the fender a little towards the oposite side of the rubbing a hold while some bolts are tightened on both sides.... most of these fenders are not centered and they ALL have some play as far as their position over the tire.
