    I have an 01 mastiff with an 18" rear and 21" front, can any other combo work on this bike? I want more rim and less tire on the rear, say 21" and possibly a 23" or 24" on the front. Can this be done? As long as the total circumstances are the same for the stock rim/tire combinations?

    As already mentioned, an introduction goes a long ways.. n e ways, u can possibly do what the 08' -10' pits did and go with a 20 on the rear and 23 on the front.. mods would have to be made of coarse. Good luck

    Reenforcing the intro,

    What’s the tire width on an 01 mastif? More wheel/less tire will stiffen the ride. If it’s a narrow tire, the looks might not be worth the loss in ride quality.

    Keep in mind how this will effect your handling. Making the front tire taller will detract from your handling and can cause the front end to feel more vague in corners.

    Local shop said Shinko made them but I can't find them anywhere. Big Dog wants 35 dollars just to ship them
