    Default wider tire on FJ-09

    Hi, I have a 2015 FJ-09 that needs new tires. I have a set of take off Q3's in my garage, but they are wider. The OEM size was a 180 and the Q3 is a 190.

    Any thoughts about going up a size? It's a way to get the rest of the life out of the Q3 and move them out of the garage.

    I read a little about the size affecting turn in, circumference, and of course making sure it has sufficient clearance. I wonder if the difference really adds up to much, or if I should just avoid it.

    I wouldn't order a larger size, but I have them....


    Any thoughts?

    Just run them. Wouldn't even think about it.

    They'll be fine.

    Your going to die.





    Your fine, have you been able to find anything on the forums to see if the tire rubs against the swingarm or chain or anything

    It won't. For the most part the profile just becomes slightly more triangulated because the narrower bead width is pinching the tire. Sometimes a wider tire actually helps chain slap. Chain slap is usually only a mx bike motard conversion issue though.
