Q: I would like wider tires on HD sporters 883- 2005 model?
Over 3 years ago
I would like to replace the orginal tire size with wider (fat) tires on my 2005 Sportster 883C. Also in Suriname-South America we have lots of rain. Will these tires fit : D401 rear 150\80-B16 & front 100\90H-19.
Is this what i'am looking for? Please recommend. Regards, RayBen
A: It is not recommend to go to wider tires on the same wheels. This can cause adverse handling issues. The tire size you listed would be the stock sizes for this model and they would fit perfectly. The D401 is a good tire and will do well in the wet, and as well when it is dry.
