Before everyone busts you b@lls about this subject, just do a search. A couple of guys have 24s. One in particular does talk about the front suspension and rolling the fenders. If you do do it, keep the fest posted.

For greater good of the 7 community, let's just start telling people you can't. If you put anything bigger than a 22" rim on a 7 it will rip the fenders and hubs off the first time you hit a bump or flip over the first time you take a turn faster than 45mph.

Wrong wrong with having bigger wheel at first, but it'll put wear and tear on the front end in the long run.. 22's is a nice comfortable size
