3.5 sounds like it might go up to a 150 or 160 at the most? that's just the rim. maybe i'm wrong. just a guess. you might have a problem fitting it in the frame. are you trying to fit it in a particular fender, or are you going to find the fender after putting the tire on the bike? how much clearance between the chain and the tire do you have now? i know my sporty rear wheel is a 16x3.5 and it came stock with a 150. i've got a 16x3 with a 140, but i'm probably gonna go up to a 150 with it.

Thanks Bigdaddy, from what info I found out I think a 150 will work,I am bobbing the bike so all the stock fenders are off and I should have the clearance,Battleaxe
