is your friend planning to hook this onto a trailer or something ?
i mean, do you think that bike will have enough power to pull itself & your friend together after you have done fitting it with 190/80/15? man, you are talking big rubber & big rims. 190/80 is also a very fat tyre, not even fit for a car.

sam - isnt taht chain cover straight from a TVS XL super?
Ok, a 195section is gonna kill the transmission and engine and also the swing arm will touch on both sides.
Not worth the efforts man.
else, get an MUV's 15"rims and ...........but will look as ugly as I wont wanna mention here.
Just stick to a max of 150section man..

Good observation fieroid. However a half chain cover would have given a cool look. Samy raided the OE parts bin of manufacturers to build this one. Neat execution and finish!!

I have seen a bullet in Bangalore with a M800 tyre. It would increase the drag on the bike, lose speed and have problems with sprockets, swingarms etc. Best to avoid. You could give it a shot if you have both money and time at your disposal. Do post your results.

I have seen bullets with 14inch steel rims here in bangalore. The prob is that the car tyre with the wide profile will affect handling like mad. it wont feel like a bike anymore. no cornering at all

Ya, Im really good at observing things. yeah a hald chain cover would look aggressive

Neo will sell you a single piece of their alloy designs. You'll need a 6 / 6.5J rim width to do justice to the tyre. Due to various reasons, I can't go into more details. Sorry.

Broaden the frame that holds the rear wheel. Alter the swingarm accordingly and source new shocks to match the change in height. Simply said, but not very easy.....

To fit a car wheel, first of all you need a single sided swingarm.

Next you need to raise teh suspension to compensate for the smaller radius.
