I am thinking about buying a fatter front tire and found a great deal on this tire size. Wanted to ask the board for advice. I have read many threads on this but they all have 160/60 or 170/60. How about 160/80 does that fit? I know the second number tells you how tall the tire is.

I seriously doubt that you would be able to get a 160/80 under the front fender without some serious changes.


I loved my 160/60 Avon Storm and I only enlarged the mounting holes and pulled the fender up about 1/8 to 1/4 inch.

anything bigger than a 160 60 and you will 1. have to take the fender off. or 2. slot the chit out of the fender mounts.

Hey I appreciate the quick response guys. I guess I will continue to look for the right size of 160/60 then. The 160/80 was 10$ and has PLENTY of tread on it. Just curious!

Yeah the "80" means it's 80% of the width in sidewall height. I currently have a stock front tire but from all the pics I've seen on this forum, there's no more room past 160/60.
