    Darkside

    I see many TW's made into bobbers and they have wide white wall tires on the rear. Has anyone gone over to the darkside and used car or light truck tires on the TW

    I don't believe that is a car or truck tire in the picture shown. No one that I have seen or read about on the forum has darksided their TW.

    I would agree. Wide with more tread on the ground. Some of the ATV tires some members use would feel like a darkside tire when first going into a turn. I may have seen some Japanese photos of car or truck tires on a TW, but nothing I can point you to though, sorry. I haven't seen anyone on the forum here in the states do it.

    I just wish shinko would make the 244 & 241 for the rear so we could have some rear tire choices.

    As far as motorcycle tires go, the TW rear tire is a great tire. I would do the fat tire mod with a rear TW tire in front and the biggest ATV tire I could get in the rear if my TW wasn't already so burdened carrying my fat A** around.

    The rear tire you're seeing there looks like a Dunlop K180 dirt track tire with the sidewall painted white.

    Exactly right CJ7. They used then on Suzuki Van Vans, TW 125, 200 and 225's.

    That is probably just white paint. I mean that is what while walls are anyways.
