.Just because you can squeeze the tire on the rim,doesn't mean it's a good thing.Look at it this way,just because a fat chick can get in to a mini skirt,should she????:crzy: You'll be much better off sticking with the 180. If you want a fat tire,go with a full blown 250 conversion.
Is your front E3 a bias ply or radial ? They come in both flavors.I am new to the forum and a new rider at 55. I searched for thread s on tires but didn't see that one. Searching for tires I did see a the D407 and I also saw some not so great reviews. I bought the bike in May with just under 10000 miles. the front tire has already been replaced with the Elite3 i believe in the correct size. I am traveling right now and do not have access to the bike but the rear tire is a Dunlop. I was looking at Metzeler ME 880. There were a lot of good reviews on it. Thanks for the input I will check out the D407's
