Running the same amount of air? I had a sportster that would rub a little but only when I was backing it up is this rubbing all the time?

Your wheel is not strait, or you think its the same tire., but one of them is not so. most likely your wheel is not properly alligned.
Check again & then double check. & not by compairing threads on the axle adjusters, measure from your swing arm pivot bolt, or cross bar on the frame, some where fixed & equal on both sides.

How old was the tire you replaced , i have run into this before , mainly with off brand tires . Tires are all allowed to be off a % . So for Example a Dunlop 130 is 4.025 a Dunlop 130 Made on the first of that batch could be 4.050 Same as a Metzler Could be even bigger. If your wheel is properly aligned there is little you could do about it with out changing something else down the line . Chain alignment , wheel spacing . .... How much is it hitting by ?

Bump, if it isnt rubbin bad you can grind off the sholder of the tread, ya might have to rebalance it though.
