20" tyre

Post by Andy Chaos » Wed Dec 02, 2015 6:54 pm

Where is the best place to pick up a 20" Enduro / Trials or Mx tyre for the front of my B50 MX, it could do with being road legal and speed rated to 121 mph :shock: (only kidding about the last bit).
I need to get the B50 on the road as a test bed for the Bonneville engine but with the cracks in the front tyre I don't think even boot polish will do the trick. ;-)

Andy,

Did you get a tyre?

I've got a 2ls large conical hub front wheel with 18" rim if you want to borrow that. Should be alright if you're just using it on the road for testing.

Cheers, Keith.

Thanks for the reply Mike
I had already found them and it might be an option but I was looking for more of an off road tread for when I put the standard engine back in. I might have to bite the bullet and go to 21"
Cheers Andy

This available on Ebay, not sure if it this is what you want, "3.00-20 Mitas H-02 64Q (Universal). I've not tried it, but was thinking about getting one.

Whilst I have never tried this model or size, I can comment on Mitas tyres, I have one model of semi road/off road on my B44VE and a different model that is slightly more off road for winter use on what was my Blazer, but now on my Fleetstar.
The vendor claims they are made by the same factory that makes Continental tyres.
They last a long time, good in the dry, ok enough in the wet to still ride circles around Japanese sports bikes.

As you can see I even a Yorkshire man knows when a tyre is past its best.
New tyre fitted and now on the road should be fun if it ever snows.
