Hey guys I ordered a new fender from tank machine. My current rear wheel size is 200/55/18. Tank machine said the largest tires they used were 200/60/16. In theory my tire should fit since my tire height is smaller no? Or does the rim size play a factor. Thank you for the help

It's relative if this is "much" or maybe "not so much". Your (18") wheel is 1.3" or 33 mm taller than the 16" wheel they claim is the largest they ever installed.That means the radius (from your axle) is only half. 0.65" or 16.5 mm which is what is less clearance to your fender. Not sure if there is enough clearance to cut 16.5 mm off - talk to Tank machine, they should have a note on how much clearance was on top of that 16" wheel they installed. Good luck!
