Has anyone done tire stretch on rear wheel of C14?
I am not trolling.
I ask a legit question...
I'm not familiar with that term.  Could you elaborate further?
It is  where you put a tire on a much wider rim then it was meant for.

I guess I'm one of the few who'll forever keep 55s.
Just one of my favorite 17 mile rides close by...LOL

I just spooned on a 50 series after several 55's going to see if I missed anything?

Im putting on a 55 tomorrow, I've done this with every bike I've owned that came with a 190/50. More cornering clearance and quicker steering is the usual result, but this is a heavier bike so im interested to see if it causes front tire wear issues.
I like sheds and ninjas.
