    Default Small invader wheel, Tire dilemma....

    I've been searching the interwebs for a tire to fit an old invader rim. The old tire that was left on it was 2.25 x 17. I've found many tires of that size that can the handle high speeds, but not very many that can handle the load requirements. I will be putting it on a 1998 Sportster 883 with a weight of about 500lbs (Stock). However the max load I've found on a 2.25x17 tire is about 300lbs. Am I overthinking this? I would really like to avoid having a front tire blow out. Would a 300lb load rating be enough for an 883? Has anyone else found tires for this size rim?

    Thanks for any replies!

    Have you gone into any shops? A local indy should be able to figure something out to run on it.

    I think the weight is dispersed over both wheels, the front on my sportster is rated for 467lbs

    ya I agree, I would still give a tire expert a call but your 500lb bike is not putting a 500lb load on your front tire.
