U only need the rim if u wanna go 250 or bigger. The 240 will fit fine on the stock 90 rim. It's addresses already in shop talk and how tos
Anything larger than a 240 will not fit on an M109R rim on the M90, so I'm skeptical you even know what you're talking about here...no offense.

If you have a link for these threads you are referring to, please enlighten me because I've never seen anything like that on here.

I don't normally get involved in these kind of things... but i am going to go on a limb here and say the 240 won't fit on the M90 rim...to the best of my knowledge (correct me if i am wrong please) the M109R has a 18" rear rim and the M90 has a 17" rear rim. I am guessing that means the 240 tire will not fit on a M90 rim.

That is correct, the rear on a M90 is 17", but with minimal work a M109
wheel and 240 tire fits right in.... I haven't tried a 250 on my buddies M90,
but the 240 is tight....

The M109r rim deff fits with a 240... i was told the 250 fits but you need to shave 2mm off the drive shaft side of the tire to stop it from rubbing the drive shaft. I was commenting to wrisperj about the 240 tire fitting on the M90 rim...

If anyone has a M109r rim with 240/250 in decent shape and want to sell it for a decent price i would be interested.. but i am on limited funds right now so it would have to be a decent deal (My wife ever so politely pointed out to me that i have already spent more money on my "girl friend" then i have on her this year lol)

Just so we're not getting off track here...We all know the M109R rear rim fits on the M90, thus having a 240 tire on the M90.

wrisperj is alleging the 240 tire will fit on a stock M90 rear rim, which it will not. If that was the case I, nor any of the other M90 owners that have done the mod, would have spent all that time and money doing the M109R rear rim swap.

In as much as I don't want to be a d:edit:k, wrisperj doesn't know what he's talking about. I don't want to see a new M90 owner go out and buy a 240 tire thinking he/she can fit it on their stock rear rim.

Not a miracle, just some duck tape, you can do anything with that stuff :agree:
