Vee Rubber Monsters – still “the biggest and best”
Noted as one of the combatants in the notorious “wide tire wars” of the late 1990s, in which they went head-to-head with Avon Tyres and Metzeler to claim the wide tire bragging rights at the time of the so-called “fat rear end boom,” Vee Rubber still offers the widest motorcycle tire on the market.
Their VRM-302 Monster/Twin is designed for OEM and aftermarket wheels on heavy weight custom cruisers and touring baggers and feature the same “new gen” construction techniques seen on Vee Rubber’s popular White Wall 302/Twin tires.
Said to offer improved construction, tread and performance, Vee Rubber USA’s North American VP Sales John Leale says “The unique twin-ply, triple-belt construction means we have an outstanding load rating with exceptional handling; the distinctive, tested and proven tread pattern permits remarkable wet and dry operation.”
Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Vee Rubber USA uses “robust bead wire to give a strong and stable high performance side wall.” Sizes are available for most custom cruisers and baggers, with the Monster 32” being the tallest front tire on the market.
Leale says that “more than capable of exceptional two-up handling, our Monster tires are still the biggest and best on the market thanks to Vee Rubber’s continuous investments in manufacturing technology and processes and our relentless commitment to quality control and improved design.”
