Will a 18 x 4.25 rim fit the 9 with no fender clearance issues? I'm doing the 160/60 up front but I'm not all that convinced on fitting it on a 3.5 rim. It kinda looks like a muffin on a baking tray. I know a hell of a lot of you guys run it on a 3.5 with no problems but would like your opinion nonetheless on the 4.25 rim.

Black Diamond did it on his. I think you can see it in his folder pics. If not search for his threads and it will come up.

I was thinking DonJulio had done it also..(Sorry by "it" I mean 170 on the 4.5 rim.)

Both Bikes are OFF THE CHARTS!!!:drool::bigthumbsup:
