    My tires on the bike are mt90 16X3.5. can I use a rim size 16X3.00? This wheel came from a 2000 sportster 3/4 wheel bearing.it should fit, but im wondering about the width of the rim being 16x3.00. will my tire (16x3.50) fit the rim with no problems? really want to get rid of the laced wheels with tubes

    Yes, you can safely run the MT90 on a 3.00" rim but what I don't understand is why you don't pick up a wheel from an early touring model rather than a wheel from a different model that could present fitment issues? There are plenty of early tubeless rims available for cheap on Ebay. I have two sitting in my storage unit.;)

    More than likely you will be upsetting the handle and ride which will directly change the safety of bike.
