Re: Rear tire

Do a search for F3 Wheel Swap. It'll allow a 180 series tire. Handling differences are debatable, but those who've done it don't seem to mind any percivable downfall.

HELP PLEASE.
Do a search on tire profiles. May not be a good idea if you are doing any agressive/fast riding

I run a 180 w/ the f3 wheel.

makes the look a bit more beastly from behind. To resolve the heavier tire and slower turn in due to this, I simply raised the rear a bit and lowered the front. I may even say that the bike feels very good to my knowledge. And to be honest, I don't race my bike, but i do enjoy a good set of twisties.

my .02, going back to work now.
