I'm thinking about mounting a Shinko 705 150/70X17 RADIAL to my 2010 scrambler. I already have the matching 110/80X19 Radial in the front with a 140/80X17 bias on the rear. I have heard many different things about mixing radial and bias ply tires, and the majority just said "dont do it," so I did, and I haven't noticed any ill effects towards performance, handling, ride, etc. I'd like to slap the 150/70X17R on but im not sure about clearance issues (chainguard/chain). Has anyone run this tire or this size tire on their scrambler? I'd hate to buy and mount a tire and it not have enough clearance.
