what size tire

Post  apuls56 on Wed Jun 24, 2009 4:05 pm

I have a 08 C50T and was wondering what size tire would fit. I am about 2 weeks away from needing a new rear and want to look at all my options.

thanks

That's probably at 195/65r15.... Which means someone has successfully put a 195 on your bike which means you have a TON of choices in car tires. I recommend going with one of the tried and true tires to begin with. a michelin hydroedge and General Atimax HP come in a 185 AND look really cool. Goodyear triple tread comes in a 195 and lot's of folks like it on their bikes.

Good luck!

have you lowered your bike at all? I have a 2 inch drop at the rear fender and wonder how close your tire is now to the fender.
