Bigger Tire

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the site and have a question I'm sure someone has answered before.

I have an 05 V Star Custom and I love it.

What size tire can I put on the stock rear rim without any mods?
I have heard a 200 will fit without any problems. Is there any truth to this?

Oversized

I have no experience but here is a article where someone did go to a 200.

Say NO. The engine, transmission and drive train are designed to run the tire size that comes on the bike. I LISTEN TO MY MECHANIC,

The tire size is limited by the clearance to the driveshaft.
