Default Fat tire?

Im gonna do it. I did a little browsing but I cant find a place that advertises that they make one. Do I gotta go custom or do they make a kit?

Don't do it!

180 is plenty big and it will screw with your handling. Leave the giant tires to the choppers.

Anything 180+ is going to screw with your ability to even drive in a straight line. It will be effing great as a show bike, but don't expect to be able to drive it there. This isn't going to be a usable vehicle, it's going to be something to stare at. Have you even tried 'shopping it to render the look? Throwing something that wide on the rear will make the rest of the bike visually look like a rickety piece of ****.
