Tyres and wheels

Postby Fesart » Tue Mar 20, 2012 5:23 pm

I wonder if it's ok to have a 110/80 x18 rear and a 90/90x18 front tyres, taking in account that I fitted a T250 swing arm as we discussed in another post (shorter and slightly narrower than te stock T 500 one).
I'm afraid a 130/80x18 could be too close to the swingarmo (3 mm per part maybe).
Thank again for all the useful suggestion! ;)
Federico.

Put your std swing arm back with some decent phosphor bushes, and then you can put better rubber on, I have built and raced T500's for 40yrs and can assure you it is detrimental to shorten arm www.tr500.co.uk

A 90-90 front and 110-80 are fine for racing and street. I use 2.15x18 front rim and 2.50x18 rear rim.
