Figured that I would take a few pics before putting my autox shoes on. Specs are available from manufacturers, but sometimes it is helpful to see the pics. Here's the side by side stacks. The RE71s are 255-/40-18s. The Enkei TS-10s are 18x8 (autox street class legal).

Stock setup is a little over 52 pounds

As shown by the pics on the scales, the 255s aren't ballooned too much on the 8" rim. There is about a quarter inch overhang where the tire will hit a curb before the rim. The stock tires have a built in rim protector ridge with just slightly less overhang.

I just put them on and ran on them this weekend for the first time. Fitment is close, but I didn't hear any rubbing. I need to do some further range of motion testing with them and will try to get some pics this weekend.

Sorry, but I haven't driven on the factory setup. I shipped my winter tires (Michelin AS 3+) on another set of TS10s straight to the dealer and had them installed before I picked up my VN. The factory setup is in my basement unused - I'm not sure when or if I'll use them. I might try to sell them, but I'm not sure if anyone would want them.

I found that the factory P-Zeros were acceptable once scrubbed in but definitely off pace from something like RE71 or Rival S. The factory P-Zeros also did not seem to respond well when used with the Sport+ suspension setting (N mode) as I found them too easy to overdrive. This could have been somewhat dependent on the lot surface and ambient temps but the best comparison I could think of was it was like driving my 92 civic race car with 800/1000lb springs on street tires rather than slicks.

To look at the gap under load, I put just the front left up on a ramp. Note that rear left is just off the ground - with 22mm rear bar.




The wood dowel is 1/2inch square. The screwdriver barrel is 3/8 inch. The gap is tightest from the front seam at about 10o'clock and 12 o'clock.

At full lock and under compression (same single ramp setup), gaps are tight at under 1/2 inch, especially at the front and rear tire edge to the fender liner.

No rubbing that I've noticed yet, but it is close. It wouldn't surprise me to get some slight rubbing under dynamic load. Also, no pics for shock clearance. In the back it is less than 1/2inch, and I haven't looked at the front.
