Hey all,

I have been on a journey to get big tires on my bike (mostly because I like the look), but its really hard to find out what fits and what doesn't, some brands work and others don't. from my research on this site the stock tires for an xs750 are a 90-90-19(front) and a 110-90-18(rear), as for the xs850 I'm not sure if there is a difference, if anyone knows lemme know and I'll update this post. I want to make it as easy as possible for people to come in and find out what tire sizes they can use, from what I can tell the biggest size that has been able to fit on the rear or an xs750 is a 130-90-18, but only in certain brands, and a 120-90-19 front, which doesn't seem to be a regularly available size for the most part.

I would like to keep adding to this list, so if you have any input on the largest size you got to fit without any modification, let us know.

xs750/xs850 Front tire: stock is 90-90-19
-Bridgestone Spitfire (100-90-19)
-Dunlop 404 (100-90-19)
-Kenda Challenger K657 (110-90-19) - fits no problems
-Shinko 705 (110-90-19)
-Shinko Tour Master 230 (110-90V-19) - still waiting to find out for sure!

xs750 Rear tire: stock is 110-90-18
-Avon Roadrider (120-90-18) - still waiting to find out for sure!
-Bridgestone Battlax BT45 (120-90-18)
-Bridgestone Spitfire (120-90-18) - fits but just barely
-Dunlop 404 (120-90-18)
-Duro HF318 (120-90-18)
-Kenda Challenger K657 (130-90-18) - rubs drive shaft housing (needs to be shaved, or housing needs to be dented more)
-Kenda Challenger K657 (120-90-18)
-Pirelli Sport Demon (120-90-18)
-Shinko Tour Master 230 (130-90V-18) - rubs drive shaft housing (needs to be shaved, or housing needs to be dented more)

xs850 Standard Rear tire: stock is 120-90-17
-Dunlop D404 (130-90-17)
-Shinko 705 (120-90-17)

xs850 Special Rear tire: stock is 130-90-16
-Metzler (140-90-16) - fits but tight

list up to date as of 08/07/2014

so if you have big tires on your bike, let us know your brand and what fits and I'll add it to the list, this will help everyone in the future researching tire sizes.
