Hey Hey Fat Tire! 16" front ??

So what is the largest/fattest 16" front I can run on my factory rim??? Can I run a REAR Dunlop D402 on the front? I believe my wheel is only 3" wide as well. I dang didn't get 2500 miles out of this last set of dun-junks I dont believe!!!!! Maybe 3000 but thats pushing it. I've got a new engine I need to be getting broke in but I'm to the point of not riding my front is so bad!!

06 FLTRI- SE 95'',SE 251 cams,SE PRO Kompressor 10.5:1 Heads w/manual CR,TTS Mastertune,D&D FATCAT 2:1

Yes, but i think you have to mount the tire with no air in it, then air it up so you can get it in there. I'm going with a 150/70/18 or the 160/60/18 when my stock one wears out.

You have other issues if you're only getting 2500 to 3000 miles on a tire.

I'm considering a fat front Tire too.

I'm curious how it will ride with the fat front and a car tire on the back. I'm gonna darkside it this season but I really like the look of the fatty up front
