Easiest would be to use the Large Marge rim and Endomorph tire (I think) from surly. Going to m/c stuff would be next easiest. Though lacing an m/c rim to a bicycle hub would be mildly complicated.

Last idea: removing some rubber from the m/c tire. Some airplane guys did this to use 'balloon' 4x4 tires on a bush plane. Search for the Sherpa for pics. A guy could make some fatty slicks from m/c knobbies.

[edit: changed ectoplasm to endomorph]
