Default 2008 Victory Vegas Jackpot rear tire

Will the Metzeler ME 880 XXL 300/35-18-87 tire fit on my 2008 Victory Vegas Jackpot without any problems or alterations?

You will have to relocate the wiring harness from inside the subframe to outside.

Have you ridden a Jackpot with a 300? I have...It really handles like shit. What a lot of people do is replace the 250 rear with a 240mm Pirelli Night Dragon, which actually improves the handling because of a more rounded profile.

A super wide tire does what a car tire on the bike does. When you lean over, the contact patch in the rear gets farther from the bike's centerline and the front doesn't... so it requires a lot of effort to initiate and maintain the lean. Road irregularities steer the bike and pull you around, so low speed stuff over ruts or rough pavement is a fight. A more rounded profile mitigates a lot of that...

Default night dragons!!

i can attest to the 240 night dragon on my hammer, besides its great traction + better handling from the sporty profile its lighter as well!!
