Default 18x10.5 rear Wheel.. Tire size?

Got a great deal on a Hammer rear wheel. 18x10.5 with spacers.
Should I run a 300 or 280 tire on it?
Can any wide tire Hammer riders offer some advice?

I ran a 300 rear tire on my 07 hammer with no spacers and I loved it. All I needed to do was grind a little on the inside left side swing arm.

Talking 300 arriving tomorrow

I finally ordered my 300 tire last friday. It will be delivered tomorrow!
(Delay due to having the rear wheel powder coated and installing my mini apes and cables)

Plus I love to learn and tinker, plus that pride in doing it yourself is gratifying when people ask where you take your bike for customizing, lol

Yup, please post pics and your impressions!

I actually went the other way, from the stock 250 to an Avon cobra 240, since I like hitting the twisties with my bike, It'll work better for what I do.

Any updates SWRidin?
I have also decided it's time to join the 300 club!
After reading all the threads/post I could find am I correct in saying the 18x10.5 with Avon 300 will just clear the belt on a 2014 Hammer 8Ball?
Of course I will be cutting the rear loop bar off and griding down the frame and also the swing arm where the brake line mounts. One question is where do you guys mount the brake line now or do you just let it hang free?
Any tips will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Mat
