205/75X15

Post  joekeys on Tue Sep 13, 2011 5:42 pm

Has anyone tried a 205/75X15 on a 1300R? I would like to try it unless some one knows of a problem.

Haven't heard of anyone using that size... It is just a hair over 3/4 of an inch taller, but not really any wider.
It would probably fit...
Let us know how it works out. thumbup

I would check clearances with two up. Don't forget to turn your exhaust bolts around if you are running stock exhaust.

Watch out for a tire that tall. You can run into geometry problems and end up with some handling issues. Plus with that much ground clearance...you could possible be able to get onto the side wall! JMO

(I realize guys that we do some trend setting stuff here. But it's not worth getting someone hurt. Think about the issues before we answer. I am NOT saying you guys are wrong, but if someone gets hurt, you don't want it to be your advice that did it! JMO)

****With that being said.....Everyone that choose to do the mods we do here, do it at your own risk!!!

I was thinking the same thing .... that a carlile trailer tire would have a stiffer sidewall with a ( c ) rating .... and would correct my speedometer and give me good tracking ..... im running a aultimax hp 195 65 15 now and it is buzzy at brisk highway speeds 80 mph + ....I pull a trailer most of the time so im not carving all day long ... but some times I do the rockys .... or the dragons tail .... but most of my miles are highway .......i'm just looking to see if any else has tryed this yeah
