Tyre sizes - thoughts please

Postby Fandango » Sat Apr 17, 2021 3:19 pm

Hi, I’m looking to change the tyres on my gen 1 and struggling to get a pair of the standard sizes (100/90/16 & 120/90/16).

I have found some Pirelli sport demons but they are 110/70/16 and 120/70/16. Anyone tried different ratios and the pros and cons?

I have found a set of wheels but they are fitted with 140 tyres, I’m thinking that would cause clearance issues and slow the turn in? Cheers in advance.

For Gen1 I think it's BT45s only. Personally I would only run stock sizes but I've got a Gen2 so have more choice.

Cheers, this is for a one off charity ride so cost comes into it as well. I’d have sought out a Gen2 if I knew tyres where so much hassle!

The tyres in it have plenty of tread... front was fitted in 2002 and the rear 2013 though!
