increased trye profile adjustment?

as above, im about to go for a new 55 rear. but my RC has a hugger on it, just checking if anyone else has been in the same boat and did they have to have any adjustement made to incorporate the larger profile, heating and adjusting the hugger to make more room for example?

Some of these items, you know the search will work on this site...

But yes, I run a Tyga hugger and run a 55 rear with no issues.

by the looks of it, it will be mega tight. is that the way your looks with a 55 and a hugger?

Define mega-tight?

Mine has at lease +10mm clearance.

That's a 195 and a Puig hugger. SP1 swinger and one extra link in the chain to move the tire back a little.
You may need to add an extra chain link...
What sprockets do you have on now?

Count the teeth. It would help to know that.
Especially before you buy the 195.
Is your chain 106 links? you may need to increase to 108 links, I'm not sure.

Polarbear - If you can, 1-take a picture of where your rear axle is set. 2-count the teeth on front and rear sprockets, 3-and count the links in your chain. With that info, we can pretty much figure out if the 195 will fit ok.

What hugger do you have? Picture of it?
