What is the widest rear rim we can use on our stock swingarm with any modifications?

They measure Rims in inches normally, stock is 8", but I believe you can get an 8.5" in there with no problems. I also am pretty sure your swing arm is the same width as the A models and the DX (07 and newer).

8.5 is the recommended aftermarket rim.

9" is largest rim you can get in the stock swing arm, but with tire you will need to do some modding to make it fit

What would have to be done to make it fit with tire, would a 280 tire be possible with the 9 inch rim.

I believe a 280 is going to require a different swing arm. Not 100% sure though.
