    What's a shame it was never ridden and it probably won't be

    I love that bike and would have bought a Wolf in a heartbeat if there were any rear tires for it. There is nowhere to hide on that issue. Really too bad.

    Don't know what it would cost but what about about machining a billet wheel in a more common tire size???

    Good idea, Gil. But you'd still have to find a 20" rear tire. Maybe a 19 or 21. It'd be best with a 220 tire, and the stock was a 50 aspect ratio (220/50/20). I don't know of they make a 220/50/19 (or 21). I think if you changed it more than an inch up or down away from 20, it wouldn't look correct in the fender well. Same idea for the 220 width.
    I'm a diehard BDM fan, but cannot for the life f me figure out what the hell those guys were thinking when they designed a bike with a rear tire that odd size. The design guys must have got the engineers drunk and slipped it past them.

    I was thinking of sizing down and agree that it wouldn't look quite right in the well but it would allow Wolf owners to keep and run their bikes. I'm not familiar with the Wolf so I don't how difficult it would be narrow the vertical distance of the tire to the fender(swingarm stops/shocks maybe?). The other choices are to sell at ridiculously low discounts or make them garage ornaments.
    Rick, I believe the design guys got a little carried away with trying to make that "unique" design, slipped and ended up with a eunuch. If I came across one greatly discounted I would consider getting it... there's always a way to make it work.

    My thoughts exactly, :yesnod: why can't the rear wheel be changed? :oldconfused: These bikes, (Pitbull, wolf) would be a lot better off with a wheel size that has tires more available, in my "humble" opinion that is! :D

    :agree: But why??? Still makes no sence at all! What was there thinking, I mean who would say to themselves, "I know, I wanna make a bike with a tire size different than any other bike", I mean it's just mind boggling no matter how you look at it.:oldcrazy: :oldsmile:

    The tire diameter is the key. Find a 18 inch tire the same o.d. as the 20 and you're in business. It's just going to have a wider side wall.

    Yea that will work, I was thinking if you put an 18" wheel on it and it's a 35V sidewall maybe there's enough ground clearance to lower the bike an inch or so, I don't think the diamiter is going to be very noticable just looking at it, hey but I am just throwing idea's out there, by no means do I claim to know anything about these bikes.

    What we have here is a "failure to communicate". We need an engineers input and I don't know any good ones that are still working.
