I have the 21" wheel, just no idea how wide it is or how I'd find that out. To be honest I was more worried about fender rub.

Never mind, just found it online (http://cdn.polarisindustries.com/COR...006victory.pdf). Front is 21" x 2.15", rear is 18" x 5". Thanks, Johnny.

Default Tire Size Calculator

Here is a good tool for calculating tire sizes and fitment.

http://pw1.netcom.com/~sgalaba/tiresize.htm#ustires

Type in the size of the oem tire (Original Equipment Tire), then type in the tire you want to use (Alternate After Market Tire). Also type in a Speedometer Reading (I use 70 mph). It will give you a complete breakdown of all dimensions.

BTW My wifes 08 Vegas front tire is a 90/90/21

Noe, Tony, thanks a million guys. Yeah, I'm really liking the Metzlers for the roads up here in NYC (a lot of ruts and grooves). I was hoping to go a little wider on the front for that reason, but I'll definitely go with the 90/90 880 up front and 200/50 in the back.

Will a 200 50 fit in the rear with no problems? Also, remember that different brand tires will run different sizes, like dunlops run real small compared to the advertised size.

It'll sit very slightly taller but there's tons of room under the fenders and between the swingarms.

Are you running a 200 now? Any pics if you are? I am interested!
