Will wide bead width fit

Post  c4grunt on Sat Feb 28, 2009 8:26 pm

I bought a 195x65x15 GY TT for my 1300 r. The trouble is that the relaxed bead width is 6 1/4". Is this to wide to seat?

The relaxed bead width doesn't matter, that tire is made for a 6.00" rim so it's close enough to how it's molded anyway, if you had one that spent some time on the bottom of the pile it would be narrower, but it makes no difference. The fact your mounting to a narrower wheel may make seating difficult, all you can do is clean and lube the wheel and tire real good and go for it, I'm not familiar with your rim width, but I know it's been done.

Yeah what Dan said.
It should go. I imagine that Twin will be along soon to sort out any other questions you might have. I believe that he used to run that tire before going wide side.
