Default Installation of 300/35x18 tires from Metzeler?

What is required of customizations for this to go well. Is there anyone out there who has this installed and can give me some info on what I need to do. I also bought new wheels from Arlen Ness category 3G Chrome. Front 21x2, 15 and rear 18x10, 5 I have now applied for modification of my bike to the DMV. This must be fitted correctly. If not, I get it approved here in Norway, I hope someone out there can give some details on how this is done.

Is there no one who can answer my post. I'm from Norway, but was hoping some of you could come up with some ideas on how to do this. Thank you.

If you have a 10.5 rim you have to use a 280 tire. the 300 has to be on a 10 inch rim. At least thats what the witchdoctor wheels are like.

Thanks for the great tips in this forum. After studying several ways to do this, I have come up with this result. Fitted with Metzeler 300/35x18, Arlen Ness G3 Chrome Wheel 10.5 x 18 Approved by the DMV. Nice and clean work I think? Soon ready for the summer season.

Thats pretty wide. looks really nice. is the belt going to clear the tire with the 10.5 rim ?
