Default 19" tires??

Is anyone running 19'*? What size tires are you running? Do they rub? I know excessive81 has 20'*, just curious about 19'*

We keep repeating this, but any size wheel will fit a Bonnie. It is the corresponding tire you use with it that makes the difference. 16x60, 17 or 18x50, 19 some 20'* x 40. And so on. I have seen a Bonnie riding on 24'* with no rubbing on the 15 series tires. No ride, no handling, and looks ridiculous,..... but doesnt rub.

Rubbing will also depend on the offset of the wheel, with the right offset you can run a 255 tire, get the wrong offset and that same tire will rub.
