150 metzeler

I'm running a 150 Metzeler ME880 on the rear of my 97 Low Rider. I use jam nuts on inside with some loctite. I cut the bolts so they do not stick out much past the nut. I get a tiny bit of rubbing on the very edge of the left side on hard bumps. I used a spacer between the wheel and pulley to move the belt over just enough.
