If you find a tyre that is Z rated that works, let us (especially me) know.
Can anyone verify a 140 will work on a 18" diameter front rim with stock fender?....im thinking of changing my front rim order from stock 19x3 to a 18 x 3.5 and then going with a 140 metz....
cheatin....is your tire H rated only???....I assume you HAD TO REMOVE your front fender for that 160 right?...you think a 140 will go with fender?..id like to keep front fender i think for now.
Dan,Ok guys...after some research i CANNOT find any tire that is rated over an H rating for 140 tire front.
the other issue im worried about now is ALL THE 140s i find(metzeler brand)...are BIAS ply...and i do NOT see a RADIAL in 140.....i am not sure this is a good thing to match a bias on front to a radial on back....
anyone?????....lets here your thoughts....cheatin,is your bias?....
exactly my thoughts....and noone seems to make the 140 in a radial....cheatin is 160 so he used a rear tire but no 140s in radial...damn.Dan,
Definitely NOT a good idea to mix bias ply and radial ply tires--on any vehicle--sidewall flex and all is totally different--could adversely affect handling. My $.02
has anyone found out if you can fit a 130 on the front rim?130 mm would be a respectable size on a DX front rim in order to keep it balanced w/rear 250mm and keep the stock front fender.
Then again that trike(small pix) is very cool.If the doctor rules me disabled or handicapped next week,I'll apply for the special handicap plate and mod one of my DX'z in that fashion.
yes they do make a 130/60 VR 18 from metz.....it will fit under front FENDER but you need to go 18" rim....this is another thing i was considering....but i want to go 140/18.....but that is only available in a BIAS ply....has anyone found out if you can fit a 130 on the front rim?
i know the fatbob has a 130 on the front and i like the way it looks but not sure the size of rim
