Hi Guys,
Can I change my rear tyre profile to 180 size or 180/55-R17? Or what max wide for rear tyre profile?

Thanks in advance...
Cheers,
RB

Hey Richard, Welcome to the tribe :cool:. Check out our fellow Canadian tribesman Jay Fast's video here:
. He put an Avon Cobra tire, size 180/65 R 16, on his Bobber stock rims and as far as I'm concerned, they are the same rims on Scout, S60 and the Bobber. Good luck! He also tried later (successfully) to put a 17" Victory Octane rim with a Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR, size 180/55-R17, on the Bobber. Check that one out here: Victory octane wheels on the scout bobber - again Good Luck! And always keep the shiny side up (y)

Ok, didn’t know that - is that a fender clearance thing?

I’m getting the new Commander IIIs put on right now. I had to stick with the stock width because the 180 wouldn’t pass inspection under the rear fender, but the garage thinks 170 would go (unfortunately the CIIIs 170 needs a 15” rim, rather than the stock 16”)
