Correct size tire for rear on a 1999 Fatboy

Post  fatboysfatboy99 on Mon Nov 10, 2014 8:55 pm

Wanting to go to the Darkside. What tire size for a 1999 Harley Fatboy? Running a 130/90x16. Bought a 175-75R16 but I do not think it will get past the brake caliper upon installation.

The shop that did my v star 1300 removed it to get it past.My stock tire was 170/70/16,went to a 205/60/16.Good luck,I'm loving the traction:) Check the Harley forum,they will be more help.

Thank you, I am presently reading thru them. I feel like I am researching for a term paper. My biggest problem is IF I get the tire in there,,,,,will I be able to get it out when the tire is ready to replace.  Thanks again for your reply.
