nope, no probs here (stock Dunlop front/280 Metz rear), would like to have a front Metz also but they don't have it in 19"vmaxer12 said:just ordered a metz 260 for the rear and wondered if any body had any problems keeping the standard front dunlop, as you hear lots of different veiws on mis matching makes of tyres
yesMark Ducati said:Are you guys saying a 260 Rear tire (replacing the stock 240) fits the OEM rim without any other mods?
yes, a wider rim and a bit more like wider swingarm, offset front sprocket etc....Mark Ducati said:But if you want bigger than 260 then you need a new/bigger Rim, right?
You will not have any issues with the 260 rear on the stock rim.nightroddrew said:Confirmed. The Metzler 260 fits the standard OEM rim.
Do a search for 260 tires for experiences on fitting and handling.
(could someone verify that this is the correct model # for my reference).
You need to mod the rim to go above 260. Check out Roadhog from Belgium's
gallery. He's got a 280 on his.
They certainly do, check following:EZE RIDER said:Metz does not make a tire in our size for the front?
