I'm a brand new rider and was wondering what the biggest tire is that I can fit onto my factroy rims. I have Dunlop E-3/250 on there now. Can I go up to 260 or even to 280? Let me know.

:welcome:to the forum:congrats:eek:n your 9. From what I read on the forum, the largest size you should put on the stock rim is a 260. The 9 was my first bike also. Just take your time. Everyone tried to tell that the 9 was too big for a first bike...screw them.....RIDE SAFE....STAY UP:bigthumbsup:

oh boy, here we go.

but i will answer your question for you. the 260 is what most people will consider to be the largest tire to put on a stock rim safely.

however, some members on here will tell you that you can go with a 280 and technically it will fit. however, the manufacturer of the 280 tire states that specific sized tire should only be mounted on wheels that are 10" wide. to mount a 280 on a stock 8 1/2" wheel is not the safest thing to do.

i would play it safe and go with the 260. :bigthumbsup:

:congrats: on the nine & :welcome: to the site. The 250 Dunnie is actually wider edge to edge then the 260 Metz because of the tire profile and although the Metz is a better tire for an aggressive riding style they are much more expensive then the Dunnie and generally get less mileage due to softer compounds. I just replaced my Dunnie E-3 250 for the second time. I might go with the Metz for front and rear if I decide to spend the money for Coastal Moto's tire and wheel package....

You mean me? Just to clarify, I've never even discussed how wide of a tire would fit on the 9's rims before I started my "spoof" topic on it today, but then again you don't seem to be too interested in facts.......

god grampi (jim), you really are a dumbass. and this post just goes to prove yet again what a dumbass you really are. i wasn't even talking about you nor did i reference you in anyway. i was referring to "she's fine my 109".

by this latest post, i can really tell that i have razzled your brain so much over the course of two days that you are now paranoid that everything i post on this board will be about you. LOL. CLASSIC !!

Not so much that as I'm getting bored with silver colored wheels....and I would like to see just how much better Metz are (according to T-Bone) then what I have been using......now that I don't put so many miles on a year....I would hate to be changing tires every six to nine months. I really do believe Steve's comments on the Metz....just would like to experience it for myself. Hey for $2600...you get the looks and the performance :bigthumbsup:
