    First thing monday I'm droping off my wheels at a indy shop to have new Venoms put on. I'm having a 90-90 21" tire put on the front, it's about 1/2" wider then the stock skinny tire. Rear tire same size as stock. I know a guy with a BT and he loves them. Any reason I should not love them on a 06 1200-C ...Thanks.

    Hobbit, Thanks.

    Since Garyhdxlc says they're about a 1/2" wider than stock, do they still fit the stock rim? Tracy

    I just found out today stock rear tire is 6.15" wide. Venom H rated is only 5.90" wide, so I'm going with a V rated because it's 6.20" wide about $20 more. He is out of V's but has some coming in friday. So I may not get to try them out until Sunday. After I get some miles on them I will give a full report on the Venoms. I have never had any thing but stock tires on my Sportsters, this will be all new for me...
