    I gave a quick look at the conversion table, it should be 220/60-18. Well, that doesn't exist either. At least I didn't notice any.

    Blacktopper and I were in Dallas recently and Stroker's Shop Manager Derek had a Wolf in the shop they intended to convert to a 18" rear wheel. The stock wolf tire is a 220x50x20. Dunno if you could go up to a 240 or not....and not sure how many aspect ratios are available.
    I would be wary because of the appearance of the bike, which to me is the whole reason to own a Wolf. The arc of the fender well and the tire need to be the same, or the geometry of the entire rear end will be off. I don't think you could go down two inches in tire size and have a visually satisfactory result.
    I think the best play would be for a Wolf owner who is also a Forum member to step up and aggressively compile a list of all Wolf owners and then coordinate the project, as Donna and/or Matt would have little motivation to organize such a project, but I know they will help if they can. Again, find 20 owners willing to front a grand each for several tires, and you've created a bargaining position.
    And I'm sure mods, etc would help locate Forum members who own Wolves, and even the guy in Utah, who I know has sold several, would provide contact info for the current owners. Just boils down to clerical work.

    As he mentions the Wolf lines are very much on point you bring in a smaller rim and now it won't look right. That rear fender goes with the rim.

    As tapio mentions youd be looking at a 60 series tire.. Would look like a fat guy in a little coat since you increased the sidewalls by 2"

    I'm suprised if you reach more than 5 Wolf owners here in any short period of time...

    More than I thought! Cool. That is one of the only big dogs I haven't seen in person yet.

    Can we search by the bike in forum? Then PM. Some of them just might see it...
