26-inch motorcycle wheels and tires are a great way to add style and quality to your bike. While 26-inch wheels are not as standard as other sizes on your Harley, Indian, or Metric bike, they offer unique advantages to make your ride stand out from the crowd.
Whether you’re looking for style or want to make a statement, the 26-inch motorcycle wheel and tire package is a great option.
When upgrading to a larger wheel such as the 26 inch motorcycle wheel people seem to always think they sacrifice their ride quality. When pairing high-quality SMT wheels with high-quality suspension components these oversized wheels can make the motorcycle not only look great but ride great as well and in some cases even better than the factory.
When it comes to big wheels such as the 26 inch the biggest benefit you will gain is your Angular Momentum. Due to the oversized diameter of the wheel as well as the additional weight that comes with the larger wheel you will quickly notice the Angular Momentum kick in at higher speeds. That is right, the faster you go the more Angular Momentum you will get keeping your wheel and motorcycle straight as an arrow.
Upgrading your Harley, Indian, or Metric ride with a 26 inch wheel can give your motorcycle a more proportioned and aggressive stance making the wheel the center point to your motorcycle.
The way we see it, it’s all in the details. We take much pride in our work, which shows in our finished product. When you ride with the best, you ride with SMT. Forget cast, go with military aircraft-grade billet alloy!
SMT offers a lifetime structural warranty on our 26 inch motorcycle wheels. Your investment is protected because we have the highest standards in materials, testing, and construction techniques. You can be confident that your wheel will provide years of trouble-free performance.
Whether it’s bolt-on or weld-in, you must use a 9-degree rake kit if you plan on going to the next level and getting that 26-inch motorcycle wheel. SMT trusts American Suspension to deliver the best rake kits for your bike.
As the name suggests, bolt-on kits are designed to be attached to the existing framework of your bike, while weld-on kits require some welding in order to install. Both types of kits have their own advantages and disadvantages. Bolt-on kits are usually less expensive and easier to install, while weld-on kits typically provide a more solid connection and a cleaner overall look.
The simple answer is “yes”. A fender spacer will not make the grade. A 26-inch fender tucks your tire and a portion of your rim underneath the fender itself. A custom 26-inch fender can completely change the look of your stock motorcycle or simply be a necessary component to your custom-built bike.
Our 26-inch Fat Katz fenders come in classic and wrap-around styles. They are made of steel and come unpainted.
When upgrading to oversized rotors, an SMT caliper kit is an essential piece of equipment. We offers an adapter kit for 13 inch rotors and a complete caliper kit that includes a caliper for 18 inch rotors. These kits have everything you need to install oversized rotors on your motorcycle. Once installed, the SMT complete caliper kit or adapter provides superior stopping power and braking performance.
