    Can anyone tell me what is the widest tire you can fit efficiantly under the back of an 08 Street Glide? I've got nearly 9000 miles on mine and its time to start shopping for a new tire. Yeah!:D

    Thanx, Hogrotten.

    Non abs, I was wondering if I could get a 150 under there? I've been reading posts on another forum and some riders where saying they're getting 150's on em with just removing the belt guard.

    Good point! I think I'll look at it and see if there isn't a way to relieve the belt guard where tire clearance might be an issue without removing it completely. Thanx for the input Bud. Anybody else with experience in this area also feel free to chime in! All replies are welcome.
