Perelli Run Flat

Post  Tynker on Wed Jan 13, 2016 11:00 pm

I have a Stratoliner with a 17" rear wheel. CT's for that size 205/55/17 are hard to find I purchased a Perelli Run Flat, in that size, and have not yet installed it. I was wondering if any one has run that tire, or any Run Flat on their bikes. It does have a very stiff sidewall, and was asking if it might be too stiff. I have run many car tires in some of my bikes but never a "run flat" one.

Will it fit on what ?? If on a Strat or R liner , yes it will fit. A 215/60 17 will rub, if 2 up. Best to go 215 55 17. Try to get a tire with rounded shoulders. The link you show has square shoulders. A Bridgstone, and Perilli both have rounded shoulders.

You have the tire, you know it will fit and not rub like a 215 can.
Just put it on and ride. I have not read about any problems running a run flat tire on a bike.
These guys have some 205/55-17 tires, I run the Vredestein on my Honda and it has almost 37k miles on it now.

My only concern is that the sidewall is so stiff, it might not flex as well as a normal tire. I still have about 1000 miles left on my bike tire that came on the bike, when I bought it. I have the Run Flat waiting to install as soon as it wears out.

OK, I installed the Perilli Run Flat on the Strat Monday. I now have 515 miles on it, and I must say I LOVE IT !!! I have run the Altimax HP on my 2 previous bikes, and this tire is waaaay better. I was worried about the stiff sidewalls, but not any more, it is great. Nice rounded shoulders is a plus.

I now have over 2,000 miles on the Perilli, and I can say it is the best car tire I have ever run. I have bin a Darksider over 10 years, with many different car tires, but this is the best.
