I want to put a 160 tire on a stock 2005 fatboy (stock size is 150), is it possible. Has some one tried it ??

I guess mechanically one can somehow stretch the tire and put it on, but is it technically safe and sound to stretch the tire to such limits ??
I would be interested if any one can clear that doubt of mine. Thanks !

Go to the Metzler website. They list what they call Stage 1 upgrade (larger tire without modifications) They do list that the Metzler 160 will replace the 150 on a 2005 FLSTF.
