Has anyone put on a 130 on the front using the stock rim and fender?
I'm about to upgrade to a 260 on my DX and I figured I might as well do the front also.

I would think so, it's only 10mm larger than stock. I think, and please someone correct me if I'm wrong, you can go up to 20mm wider on a stock rim.

Just looked through the Metzeler Tire Guide. There is not much listed for a 19" rim. The upgrade suggested is a 120/70ZR19
The 18" rim has a good selection available.
I've run a 130/70B18 on RC Components on my '04 B with great results. I plan to go to a 140/70-18 when I replace it. The 140 is approximately 1/2" wider and is close but has adequate clearance.
