wider front tyre

I am about to get a new front tyre for my 2016 RGS.
How much wider can I go without changing the rim or anything else?

If you stay with stock rim you can only go 150 but Native Customs sells what they call their Pitbull kit I think it?s $600 you are able to get a 18x5.5 rim and go to 180 which is a truer fat tire front. The kit has a laser cut fender and cowbells that are also cut so they slide inside the fender this way you do not have to go with their $1300 kit where you can go to 200 but that has more work to be done it comes with trees to make front end wider. Hope this helps I am going with Pitbull and I will need to get a wider rim for a 180x55. I know you can use some rear tire rims but I do not know which ones will work.

Just to clarify........

The $599 NB Pitbull kit is for 1984-2013 bikes.

The OP would need the NB Pittbull kit for 2014+ HD Touring bikes. That one starts at $899.
