do you know if he put the 280mm tire on the stock rim? ive heard of guys going up to 260 but not any higher, i thought that was the max on the 8.5in rim

I just traded a c109r in for my new Kingping Tour, the difference in handling was black and white.................the c109r was a pig to turn corners ( around town) (highway was fine) with the Kingpin a smaller tyre is a dream.

Bigger tyres look bloody good, however you have to think of your safety as well.

Just my opinion.
