Hi forum, I am replacing the tires soon, and i have been considering getting a wide front tire, just for looks. I mainly commute so, im not looking for carving curves, etc. if you have gone more than the 110, how far have you gone?

I would stick to the stock tire. A fatter tire will just slow down your handling and one of my favorite things about a Scrambler is the quick turn in. The Cafe Racer has a 120 but they went to a 17 inch rim plus raised the back end with a longer shock to keep the handling sharp. Of course it depends on your riding style so if the bike turns in too quickly for you then that changes this. Be sure the rim size is large enough. I am not sure what width the 18 inch is but the 17 is 3.5 designed for the larger tire.
