    Rear wheel looks like an 18...look carefully..its an Avon Cobra Chrome design...The 16 only goes to 180....the 17 goes to 200/55 and the 18 inch goes up to 250/40....or 200/55
    Could be wrong but thats what it looks like to me..read the wall

    Afraid I'm going to have to fall in with Chris and Ian on this.

    That thing is so but ugly that it would have to sneak up on a gas pump to get a tank of fuel. :cautious:

    Have to agree, it looks like a yuppie design and it turns the Rocket into a poof charriot.:mad:

    Given that the rear wheel is definitely smaller diameter than the front, by your reckoning the front must be 19”. I don’t think so!
    No surprise that the 240/50-16 Avon Chrome isn’t listed yet; the bike hasn’t even been released. It’s not like there’s a market outside the Rocket for that size - only one other and it runs the 55 profile Exedra Max (and thank whoever for that). At least it looks like they’re at long last ditching the Metzeler.

    For those of you who would not buy one because they look ugly go to your garage and look at your current R3
