The experience many of us have is that the rear of a Road Star is really limited in wheel/tire width. I use a car tire with a width of 175 which will fit okay on the 3.5" rim. The tire is a 175/78R16. Perhaps with some grinding, a larger tire could be used, but I don't remember any of the details on that.

Welcome from East Tennessee!
I recently purchased a 2008 RoadStar Silverado. Was wondering myself if I can go with a wider tire on the back of my bike.

One common thing i have heard with people going with a wider rear tire. Make sure your bag mounting bolts don't stick too far in the fender. Aftermarket hardware will sometimes rub on the side walls.

i think the problem also comes from the brake support on the swingarm I have space on the side of the belt but not on the side of the brakes thank you so much
