Find any pic of Lamont's bike and you will have a picture of the 260.

Here is something I had posted earlier:

We did a bunch of fitting of big tires on the VTX last year. Here are the actual tire widths for you to compare.

These were all mounted on 8.5 inch wide rims.


240 Metzeler on rim is 9.5 inches wide at the seam on the sidewall

250 Avon on rim is 9 5/8 inches wide at the seam on the sidewall

250 Dunlop on rim is 10 inches wide at the seam on the sidewall

260 Metzeler on rim is 9 7/8 inches wide at the seam on the sidewall

I just changed to the metzler and compared it side by side with the stock tire. The stock tire comes to the edge of the rim but the metz extends beyond the edge by about 1/4 of an inch. It may be the round profile but it does look bigger on the bike.
