I know some of you have a 200 on the rear of your Vol/Boul. Did you put it on the stock wheel? If so what tire did you order? I'm really leaning towards a 200 but I don't know enough about tires and wheels and am afraid of F'ing it up. Better safe than sorry.

The only 200 that will fit is the Metzler 880 and it only comes in blackwall.
If you have a chrome driveshaft cover you will need to remove it for the tire to fit.

I currently have a 170/80-15
I've been looking at the 880 XXL adn I find it in 200/70-15 would that be the size everyone else has used?
I'd hate to order the wrong one! LOL

Thats what I put on mine, (200/70 15) and love it. Have had no problems at all and I think it rides better.

Are you absolutely positive the chrome shaft cover has to come off?

Avon also sells a 200/70 tire that will fit a Volusia/C-50.

In Canada steelers are asking about 410.00 Canadian, I found two retailers selling for a little less than 300.00 CA.

At Americade both Metzler and Avon had tents that sold and installed 200mm tires for about 300.00 US minus a 10% discount. I think I may go to Americade next year.
