Townmate T80 Tyres

Post  3hundredspartans on Fri 25 May - 23:12

Hi Guys,

I know the Townmate has 2.50 x 17" tyres as standard fitment but has anyone have or every had fitted 2.75 x 17" tyres on their scooter?

Are they OK, do they have plenty of clearance in the front fender and rear wheel arch?

The reason I ask is in Australia, the Honda CT110 has 17" rims but they run 2.75 profile tyres so they are readily available as they are the standard form of transport for Australia Post therefore there are squillions of them. So I don't think I will be able to get 2.50 profile tyres easily or at a reasonable price for that matter.

Feedback welcome.

Cheers, Frank.

2.75 x 17 tyres on T80

Post  JohnW on Sat 26 May - 9:04

Should be ok as there appears to be plenty of clearance. Will put up gearing slightly & make speedo read low if fitting one on the front also.
Maybe better to retain 2.50 x 17 on front as they dont wear out as quick.

I picked up a set of Michelin tyres (Wets) ... Well I am based in Ireland. Did you ever see a tyre with as many hairs sticking out.
