Hey eveyone, I just wanted to throw out that I to have installed the 280 metz on my 09 DX. I really needed a tire and the tire shop only had a used 260. I have been riding with this tire for several thousand miles without a concern in the world. I ride hard and scrape pegs and exhaust and can tell you that it handles better than a 260. The tire has more of a crown to it making it easier to lean. The tire has seen alot of stress as I am 300lbs and I ride 2 up with my wife and ride just the same with her on back. The concern about the tire rolling off the rim an be put to rest in my oprinion. I will not buy another tire than the 280 metz. Feel free to tell me that I am an idiot and risking life and limb. It feels way more stable than with the 240, 250 or the 260 IMHO.

A little fuzzy but I think you can make it out.

That does not look bad, and you will not die. I think back when I thought about putting a 280 on an 8" wheel it was recommended by metzler, not to do it, they were recommending the widest would that should be used was a 260 on an 8".

He has Arnott's. I know the bike. His rear suspension is the same as mine is Why I ask. I could have been more clear about which air I guess but I figured Jay would know what I meant.
