Alternate 205 width tire for the 18" F model wheels, and a size comparison.

Zip your zipper back up, not that kind of comparison... thanks to X-Beast Driver on the OA, he made it known that there is a 205 width tire available for the 18" wheel. It's speed rated Y (186mph Shocked Shocked ), so I think that part is covered.... But it's only $92 plus shipping!

I found it (this website I have dealt with and have nothing bad to say, but not affiliated) tire easy link (click here)

Specification Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile Difference
180/55-18 3.9in 12.9in 25.8in 81.0in 782 0.0%
215/45-18 3.8in 12.8in 25.6in 80.5in 787 -0.7%
205/45-18 3.6in 12.6in 25.3in 79.4in 798 -2.1%
205/40-18 3.2in 12.2in 24.5in 76.8in 825 -5.2%

I included this tire size comparison so it could be easily seen the differences between the stock 180, the popular 215 and the new 205 option.

I've been doing a lot of looking and thinking about going to the Darkside and was wondering if anyone has actually run these FORCEUM 205/45ZR18 90Y XL HEX yet on their VTX1800F. I like the idea of a slightly narrower width in hopes of a little better handling. Any help is much appreciated!
Thanks!

Not to my knowledge...

that tire will be a little shorter as well... check a tire size calculator for the full comparison and see if it will still fit your needs!
