Monotubes

I am sure this has been answered some where in here but after searching around I could not find the answer. Can you run the monotubes with -2 with a stock tire/rim? Reason I ask is I'm switching my forks/cowbells to black and going to install the monotubes at the same time but don't have the funds yet for the 21" wheel I want. Just dont want to have to go back and redo the monotubes if I don't have to

...and it doesn't ride too bad at all, just scrapes the boards a bit.

Got the monotubes installed (-2) and I noticed it's hard to put the kickstand down now. Do they make shorter ones or what's some alternatives??

Put a couple thin washers on the bottom two kickstand bolts, that should do the trick. $0.25 fix.
