  • Good tyre for 3 x 18/3.5 x 18 in wheel

    Going to put new tyres on the XS project bike this week, not really knowledgeable about tyres so was wondering what a good tyre would be? Apparently 3.5 equates to about 90/90-18 (so says google).

    How hard to do ride, how many miles do you expect to get out of a tyre, how much $$$ do you want to spend. For older sizes AVON have a pretty good range of compounds available in the sizes you are after for grip the super venom is the go, most other companies assume of you have a older bike or a cruiser that you will only ever want touring tyres so thats all they make.

      Fair enough, I was gonna go to that place in Vic Park, would it be safe to assume they'd have tyres to fit?

        I'd be ringing first just to see what they have, they can probally get in whatever you want but I wouldn't expect them to carry a big stock of the sizes you are after.

          See if you can get hold of a michelin A39 in 90/90-18. I rode on these years ago and they come highly recomended !!!
          Women are like motorcycles, they should be ridden hard and kept well lubricated ...

              If you want an old school look get Dunlop TT100's they were developed in 1976 for the Isle of Man TT production classes. Very soft, great in the wet and look great. I have them on the Norton, got them from tyres for bikes
