....but I'm wondering if there are any CT's that cause you to have to modify the rear fender in any way. I had a CT on my Valk a few years ago, but had to remove it to grind down a nut cage. Would like to avoid that with my 09 Wing if possible. Any of you had problems with fender clearance? Right now I'm considering the Pirelli Eufori 195/55-16 RF. Thanks. :coffee1:

I'm running the Pirelli 195/55-16 ROF and it fits great...just tighten the lugs and enjoy the smooth, safe ride :biker:

I don't recall any reports of rubbing problems with that size. It is very close to OEM size.

The width on that tire is nearly identical to the OEM MT width. You shouldn't have any clearance issues. I didn't and I run that very tire in my '09. Looking up in to the wheel well after installing it, I saw similar clearance as with the OEM sized MT I had just removed.

The Pirelli [email protected] 195/55-16 is a good choice and the 195/55-16 is the most common size used by Darksiders here. If you experience any rubbing out of that tire size, it would be extraordinary. Good luck.

That should work with no problem.

There have been a few report of minor rubbing on some of the cables on some of the newer model years, but it usually occurs with the 205/55.
In either case, it's easily remedied with a couple of tie-wraps.

No hard parts rub!

Welcome to the Darkside.

In case you didn't realize it, there are a number of forum members outside the Darkside that still swear the earth is flat.
