What Brand of OEM tires do you have? If you have the IRC's, I would get something else. If you are looking to save a few bucks stay with the stock brand. There are some better tires out there, you might have to search around for the best deal (price and performance).BlackBoar said:Crap. That's not very far. I know lots of peeps here have gone in for other tires out of preference or performance choices. Is there any point in getting factory skins again? Anyone know if they are worth the price? Or should I be seeking name brand aftermarket tires for sure?
A 150mm tire will fit on the Ninja rim and clear the swing arm. However keep in mind not all tires in a size range have the same dimensions. In other words not all tires fit the same. Also bigger is not always better. My recommendation is always check with the manufacturer's recommendations as to tire and rim fit. It is possible to get a 130 size tire that is a half inch wider than the stock IRC tire. The main problem with putting a wider tire on a narrow rim, is the area of the tire that touches the road (contact patch) is always going to be that same. So you can put a 6 inch wide tire on a 3.75 inch wide rim but approx 3.5 inches of the tire touches the road most of the time.BlackBoar said:.... A 150 rear tire fits on the stock rim and within the stock swing arm? And, are there problems/risks with the larger tire?
