New to this forum and newly returned to a hack after 30 years.
I just put a Hannigan Conde Classic on my BMW K1200RS, and I'm sure tire wear will soon be a concern! Rear rim is 5.5 x 17 and I've seen some numbers for mounting a 205/50-17 (Bridgestone Potenza G 019) that is actually specced for a 5.5 rim width.
My question is how thick of a spacer can I safely use to gain a bit of clearance on the swingarm?
I'm assuming it would be best to find lugs bolts that are longer so the threaded depth in the hub is the same.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
