Opps! Ordered wrong size, I think.

I just got new tires for my 78 Puch Maxi. I ordered 17x2's, but I think it has 7x2.25's on it right now.... will I be ok, or should I sell these and get the other one's?

Does nayone know what tires the Maxi shipped with?

Re: Opps! Ordered wrong size, I think.

It came with 2 1/4" tires and if you can send those back you'd be better off.Matter of fact,2 1/2" wouldn't hurt.

That's what I thought... man, that sucks....

Re: Opps! Ordered wrong size, I think.

Well,listen! I'm not sayin' you CAN'T use them,just that your stability in cornering may be less than it was.Also make sure they're the right ply rating(4-ply minimum is my choice.)It's like on cars;A narrow tire digs thru snow better,yet squirms more easily in turns and so gives you a less stable ride.If you are a really light guy and you don't load your bike down much,you'll probably be o.k..

I'll probably send them back... Thanks man!

Re: Opps! Ordered wrong size, I think.

Yeah,that's probably best `cause if you ever blew one out you'd be mad at yourself,and maybe hurt too.
