Default Bigger front tire

I have Monaco wheels and the 90/90-21 front tire. I went to go wider up front? Anyone done it? What did you use?

Default fatter tire

Go to the smaller front wheel. I know lots like the look of the 21", but you get more rubber on the ground with the smaller front wheel, there is also more choices of tires. If you can not find a fatter 21" front tire maybe somebody on this site might trade staight across. Good luck.

Couple of questions JR, what bike you got and whats a Monaco wheel just out of interest have you got a pic?
My Vegas has a 90 90 21 front tyre on a Stingray wheel.
Ive purchased an XC. Front wheel, same as. Hammer to I think, measured everything and trial fitted when I serviced my forks last time....it fits....fender dont clear tyre it needs to be raised half inch or more to clear but looks a bit silly.
Thinx I need a Highball fender or similar to match both wheel and forks but they run a 16" so maybe itd need raising.
Bits n pieces aren't plentiful in OZ so experimentation is difficult. Ive got a biggish outback trip on the horizon and would like to mount it for that as cornering clearance aint an issue once on gunbarrel straight roads, just hanging on is

Default Nice

Nice looking tyre. I run the Avons on my XRs been very happy with them. That is a good looking tyre/tire and out to put mo rubber on the ground for you. You might have to move the fender up possibly so check it real good for clearance before you ride it after mounting it if you go that that larger Avon 21" tyre.

Not the look I'm looking for. Works on the Hammer but not on the JP.

The bike is a JP and the Monaco wheel was an option back in '06. Nothing special.

That's what I'm looking for. A wider wheel and tire in the 21" that will fit the JP. If a mod needs doing, such as the fender, that's fine. I'd even go to a spoked wheel.

I dig the look the Harley Breakout has. They placed a 130/60B21 63H on it. With the large rear tire, it makes the bike look great.
