View Full Version : Help Finding Smaller Front Tire?? or differnt forks?

10-27-2011, 12:59 PM
anybody know how i would be able too put a differnt size tire for the front end? one thats not soo wide and bulky? i just hate having all that sloppyness up front and the tire is junk. so it needs replaced anyway. I was thinking maybe something like the later 250 with the smaller front wheels. Mine right now has 25x13.00x9 tires on it and they all leak air rapidly. the motor runs great. the trike is an 82? i believe. it is a 200 with no suspension at all. its just gunna be a trail rider. not sure on what kind of tires would be best or what sizes. considered swiching to a shocked set of forks also. but havent decided if it would be worth it. any help is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks,John

I'm kind of guessing here because your description is a bit vague...

It sounds like you have an 82 ATC200 which, if I'm not mistaken, came with 22x11x8 tires. If you have a 25" tire on there then that is the wrong size and that's why it's hitting. Check to make sure you have 8" wheels before you get a new tire.

The reg 200 came with the large rims and tires 25x12x9 . Just buy a 22x11x9 front tire and use the factory rim if you want smaller .

nothing on thew tire is hitting. i just dont like how big the tire is up front. it is in deed a 82 honda 200atc according to the vin on the frame. the 22x11x8 tires came on the BIG RED trikes which was made right after my model because from what ive read they came with suspension and my trike has no suspension at all.
