Whats goin down, bros? I need some advice on tires.. having trouble sorting out what i need. Im building a cafe/brat/zero type bike and im looking at tires.. i want a beefy fat tire look. Would i be stupid to run a rear tire on the front? The bike is mainly for around town, short trips.. not gonna be doing 100 mph (its kz400) current tires are 3.60 18H front and 3.50 18 4pr back.. im looking at tires with highest aspect ratio reasonable.. 90 or so
Any tire suggestions would be cool, if ya get the look im talking about
Thanks for lookin.

Handling and load characteristics from front to rear are definitely going to be different, but as long as handling isn't a concern, You can run a rear on the front...just run it in the opposite direction than normal.
