PM makes a phat tail kit which will do what you're looking for. You can fit 240s in there. Custom Works also makes one which fits what you're looking for. I'm sure there are others but those are the two I'm familiar with. For wheels I'd say Avon or Metzeler, seem to be the most common big wheels.

slick,
Avon is a brand of tire...there are many different wheels available to fit an Avon tire. You just have to do some research and find what style you like.

Let us know about the wide tire kit...which one you get and so forth. I'm interested.

Hi Slick,

I'm on a business trip in chicago right now so I don't have the url for the custom works site, I'll get it to you when I get back home on Monday.


As for tires that's the tire, you need to get a rim with a 8.5 width for a tire that big. There might be other widths you can use but that's what I'm getting, for rims, PM makes some really nice ones or you can go with a Custom Chrome design. I'm getting some WCC ones from custom chrome for my bike (damn pricey but damn cool :)). Hope this helps.
