Off-road... are there any severe adverse effects to running a 120 or 130 - 18 tire on the front, compared to the stock 90 - 21?
there might be a little rougher ride over big holes since the 18 incher would drop into them more than a 21 incher. i all depends on the terrain i think. i got a bad back and knees now so i do easier terrain now days so the tw setup fits me better. the 18 incher is heavier than my 21 inch setup too.
