Dyna Street Bob Wheel Question
« on: Friday, December 04, 2009. 06:50:30 AM. »
Will a 180 series tire fit on a 2007 Street Bob without any modifications to the rear fender?


TIA

Mix...I've run a 180 on my '06 Dyna without any changes or problems. But...I did not like the wear pattern or milage as well and went back to the 160. The wider tire seem to push up the center and wear it out well before the rest of the tire.

Hey, thanks Dan.  I've been mulling over possible changes/upgrades for my 07' FXDB and you just eleminated one.  Now the list includes higher numerical gearing, a fork brace, and maybe losing the spoke wheels.  It is defnitely cheaper to think about this stuff than open the wallet, especially in December.

That tire wear pattern looks like what you get when you go in a straight line too much......  :hyst:  Try some turns and curves next time.

C'mon man...cut me some slack. I do my part playing in the curves. (For all you can do on a Dyna.) I am on my third set of mufflers, and second muffler bracket bar and third set of pegs. I do the "Dragon" and the "Snake" on a regular basis. I play up and down the "Blue Ridge PkWY" and the "Skyline Drive". Some even think I live in WV....but I don't.
But...I still get better wear out of my 160's than I do the 180's and handle better. (I think?)

alright, I'll cut you some slack.  I use to have to replace the highway pegs on my dyna from the scrape marks.

I run a Metz 880  170 -60-17 on my 07 FXDB.It seems to do ok. It is my second Metz on the rear. On the Harley tire I got 6000 miles , My first Metz I got 11000 miles I couldn't get another Metz to replace it so I tried a Pirelli and just made 4000 miles, Grrr. Tire on now is a Metz 880 and still good and I got 27000 on the bike. The front tire is a Metz 880 also and the second tire.It will need replacing this spring. I do live in a mountain area (Luray Va) So the sides get worn as much as the bottoms.

 O6 StreetBob first tire made 10,000km went to the Harley 180 Dyna Wide tire Kit, it included different plates and bolts to mount the fender and side plates. Got 17,000km on it and its pretty close to the wear bars. I found with the right air pressure it handled way better than the 160, to much air pressure also will make the center wear more than the sides. On a side note +1 on the front fork brace I found it made a huge difference. ...Bob
