    I'm looking to put a wider rim & tire on my cruiser. However, it looks as if adding the wider wheel will cause the chain to roll across the motor sprocket at an angle and may add undue stress on the sprocket.
    Has anyone dealt with this?

    You can mount the engine offset to the chain side by an inch or so.
