    Is 260/60 the correct size? I thought it was 260/40 for the rear?
    I'm about to order mine, for some reason I though ot was a 35 or 40 profile? Someone please clarity?

    The Metz 240 & 260 have a 40mm sidewall, and the 280, 300, and bigger have a 35mm sidewall.

    Yup, that's what I thought, but was confused when OP said 260/60.
    Thanks fellas!

    For a stock front rim, you can go 130/70, 140/70, 150/60 or 160/60. Honestly, the 150/60 looks like it should have been there from the factory. It fills out the fender nicely with an all around even gap. I run the 160/60, but you mentioned you don't want to go that big.
