Default right size fender for a 140/90/16

go a 140/90/16 mounted on my hard tail and was wondering what the best style looking fender was? id like a nice snug fit but not to close, i was looking at a 71/2 wide fender and was wondering if thatd be to big?
thanks in advance
-Bill

Mine is a 150/80/16 and it's not that wide. I'm thinking 6.5"

Just tell him what size tire you have and he'll handle the rest. He uses a nice, thick gauge too! Should be about $160 shipped.
