I like the idea of a short wheel base bobber , small , 16" rims, tall , fat looking but not truly fat tires. Front and rear 180 sounds cool. My last 2 bobbers have 180/ 140 and 130/130 tires.
Never again I go beyond 200...


Identical wheels look cool on bobbers. I think equal tires lean better - the same radius.

I think skinny 21 wheels with 90 " bicycle tires" are not practical( especially when paired with 250+ rear). Funny, we expect 2/3 of braking job be done by front wheel, yet we do not give it enough contact patch...my long chopper has huge front 6 piston dual brakes and front tire is bigger than usual on a chopper, 120, and still, if sudden braking- it might ( and have) slide.
