the rolling diameter of a 16 inch balloon tire is about the same as an 18

16's can range from about 24 inches to 26.5 inches

about the tallest 18 you can find would be 27" and that would be a 140/80.... I think so anyhow

the drop center HD rim and the heavier tire doesn't do anything to improve suspension or steering dynamics

you'll gain about 5 pounds of unsprung weight

I have a shouldered alloy 18 laced up to a 4LS Buffalo hub

damn it is heavy!
