    While you provide great visual references, the tire well change shape when leaned over from the dynamic forces.

    The tire manafacture should list the acceptable rim range. Does the Blast rim fall within the range of the 130 and 140 tires?

    Speaking of tires (and the recommended sizes for fronts), I have a ST-66 front (110/80/16), brand new, that I am *not going to use. I like the stock MT-75 fronts too much to switch.

    If someone wants it (this is the type of tire that our legendary Maggie used - the ST66), they can have it for very little money.

    Just shoot me a PM...

    I replaced my viper strokes 140 70 16 with the Shinko 120 80 16 the original tire size this weekend and I can tell the difference it feels smoother through the leans on corners than the oversized tire. Thanks for the info in this thread. I also replaced the brakes front and rear.

    I also have Shinko tires on my bike. Got them from 4WO|Truck Parts & Motorcycle last April. I'm not a super aggressive rider. So far they are holding up well. Good handling and very sticky.
