They look awesome on my cruiser but I can already tell there's two options: Send'em back (please no!!) or maybe someone here has successfully remedied the problem of the engine chain rubbing against this sized tire. Add to this that the wheels are 26” Steel 72 spoke radial laced, and the sprocket I'm going to (attempt to) install is a 36 tooth....I forsee a lot of cussing in the next few days.
If any of the above mentioned things dont work you can go with the shift kit from Sick Bike Parts. It would probably end up looking even sweeter since you wont have 2 chains going to the back wheel.
