Largest tire to fit 1977 motobecane 50v moped

What's the largest tire to fit 1977 Motobecane 50v moped.

I believe a 2.25-17 is a stock size for both front and rear.

What's the biggest that will fit both front and rear without

removing or changing anything.

2.50

Indeed 2.5-17 is the biggest without mods

2.5 will work with precise alignment.

How much more clearance is needed for a 2.75?

You have to offset your sprocket on the rear or the chain will make XXXXXXX pattern on the sidewall of the tire and it will rupture with zero warning.
