None. Never had many 18"ers.

Ended up with the Heidenau which is OK, but the Super Explorer looked great on the bike, looked aggressive but had great road manner and would hook up in anything. It seems that DS tires in the 17" are mostly street tires with a few exceptions. Yes, I know the Conti looks great, but if I'm going to spend that much on a tire, I want it to last more than 4K.
FYI,,,you just swap em out!!! better off road manners to boot,,you'll need a different spoke kit and possibly a different rear sprocket,,will also raise rear end circa 3/4''

just saying the off road crowd digs em the most
