Fellow Deuce Riders:

This is my first post, although I have read threads on this forum for a while and not to :beatdh:, I need some rear tire advice for my 04 Duece.

I am coming up on my first tire change and have decided to change the front and rear; having decided to go with Metzler 880's .

Having seen the difference in size of the front 90/90-21 (METZLER is bigger over the Dunlop; something I am told because of the way Metzler measures their tires vs Dunlop.) I am concerned that going with a wider rear will have issues.

My choice for the rear is the 160/70V-17 or 170/60VR-17. I have read the threads about using the SE 180, but don't have the time for mods.

Is anyone running the Metzler 170 on their Duece? Any problems? Any mods required? Any problem with lowering kits (mine dropped 2" AN kit)

Thanks for the help.

Thanks

Thanks y'all.

I did not see the narrower part on the 170. I looked at all the specs on the Metz website, but with limited tire knowledge, it's just about like reading chinese stereo instructions. {salute(

I'll make a decision soon. BTW the place I'm going to order from is a website called "mctires.com"....anybody use them before? Their prices are good from the research I did.
