I know this tire has been talked about alot. But for those who oblonged the bolt holes to raise the fender. How much did you guys raise it? I know Rainey has an adaptor to raise it 15mm(1/2"). Is that about right?

You should not need to raise it at all.

If you need to at all, it should just be as high as it goes in the stock holes.

From all the pictures I saw it doesn't have much clearence. I like that look but worried about rocks scrapping the inside of the fender. One of my friends lives on a long gravel road and I'm over there alot. Hate to ruin my fender. Does anyone know how much taller the 160 is from stock?

I used the Avon Storm 160 and it is a just a bit bigger (at least it looks like it) than the Metzelers and I raised my fender a max of 1/8 inch.

Thank you everyone sounds like I don't have to worry about it. I'll try it out and keep an eye on it for awhile. If it wasn't for that gravel road I wouldn't of thought twice about it.
