    The TW already has small wheels. That's only a 14 on the back there. Usually only kids bikes have wheels that small.

    You already have five choices for the rear - in order of appearance - Shinko - Bridgestone TW204 - Bridgestone TW34 - Vee Rubber - Dunlop K180

    I've found whatever rear tire I put on, can handle all the horse power of the TW.

    REALLY like the look of the K180s. I've been extremely impressed with my Shinko 428s.

    The potential problem of the K180, is that it pretty much follows the tread pattern of a TW203 (the Death Wing" front tire) - not convinced of how that would work out in practice, but they pack them on the Van Van (which should tell you something) ........

    Personally, I like the stock 14r/18f wheel combination. They are considerably smaller in diameter than the usual standard 18r/21f you typically find on enduro/ dirt bikes.

    Without the big tires, the TW would be just another bike.

    It's the tires that really set it apart and makes it the unique bike we love!
