Thank you very much for that well thought out reply. I have yet to drive my 170; still in the repair stage. In all probability, I will be perfectly content, and much safer, puttering along at 50.
: Can anyone speak to alternate tire sizes on a
: FC 170 ?
: I am considering going to 750-16 to increase
: top end by 2 or 3 mph. Also considering
: 900-16 for the same reason, increased mph
: without re-gearing or an overdrive unit.
: Are there fit or safety concerns with either
: of these alternate sizes. Understandably,
: one might not want to exceed 50 mph in a 55
: year old FC 170.
: Thanks, Bill
