Innova Tyre Sizes

Post by Klank » Thu May 30, 2019 9:21 pm

Hi all,

I'm almost certain that I read on here that some people run 2.75 17 tyres on front and rear.

I've acquired some Metz ME22s and they're both the same size. I understand some people claim a bit of a clash on the front mudguard, but could anyone see any real disadvantage to running the same size on front and rear? Slightly reduced turn in perhaps..

Thanks,
Keith

Yes slower handling reduced turn in is about it Some like the slower handling some me included do not !

Thanks.

This has just been confirmed on a brief ride around some twisties. Feels like the bike has a hinge in the middle, so definitely going to acquire a 2.50 front and swap it out.

It's no problem really, just keep the other as a spare for when it inevitably wears out.
