Rear Tire fit? #1
So a buddy of mine gave me a set of knobby's for my RT3 But the rear tire is a 110/100-18, which is about a 4.50 - 18. Will that fit my RT3?

If you still have the stock 4.00 X 18 on the bike then just look around and see if another 1/4 inch on each side will cause an issue. Seems like people have said it will fit. I know it is pretty tight clearance up at the front and maybe have to loose the chain guard? Just look at your existing clearance. A 4.5 will take another 1\4 inch on each side....plus mud if you are so inclined....

So I installed a Shinko 244, and I'm thinking the Kenda knobby I have to install might have knobs that stick out a little further. So I'm not sure i will be comparing apples to apples.
