    If your still on a stock rim these are your 3most common choices

    $$$$$. 260 Metzler...soft,very sticky..wears quick...grip is da bomb !!

    $$$. Avon cobra.......close to Metz ...little cheaper..little longer life

    $ Dunlop eliteIII 250. Longest lasting,good grip,long life...and looks widest on the stock rim..

    Best prices and freshest rubber are probably at Dennis Kirk or Jake Wilson


    If you punch in tires in the lower google box,you can read for days on this subject...

    no problems... It wouldn't hurt to grind down bolts under the fender while you have it off...if you ever lower it,this will eliminate the chances of it rubbing....very easy...

    You will luv the look bro....enjoy !!
