Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

Can I fit a different sized tire; something other than a 2.25 x 17? I just want some whitewalls. And nothing shows proof of possession for 2.25 x 17. Am I just the screwed owner of a Maxi when it comes to whitewalls?

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

these absolutely do not exist in america. HOWEVER, check out this whitewall tire paint. looks and seems to function just as well. i am totally going to buy some of it

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

I'm pretty sure anything between 2" and 2.5" will work.

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

i have 3" tires on my newport .

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

I have white walls on the Whizzer. They need at lot more maintenance & sunlight fucks 'em up. I got a flat & screwed up the "white" quite nicely. The best thing for cleaning is Westley's Bleche Wite.

yeah, mine turned yellow pretty fast. still looks cool, though.

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

How pretty sure are ya? What's going to be the noticeable difference if I try to put 2.5s on my wheels?

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

depends on the tire and the bike. some bikes rub with 2.5's. all stock maxi swingarms rub with 2.5" it really depends on the bike.

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

Thanks. That answers that.

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

How much would you pay for a set of 17 WWW's?

Re: Whitewalls...2.25 x 17....anyone?

those are painted walls on your whizzer?

They Exist

They do exist, but are so hard to get, they might as well be a myth. Here is a picture of Pat Blackwidows/Latebirds' bike. He has got a pair but I don't think anyone elses besides the Black Widows have some state side.

I also proved this a while ago when somebody asked. Use the search function.

Chris is right.

Re: They Exist

Yeah, you can get em, not sure where shaw and colby get them, but they end up costing over $75 a tire. Thats like a motorcycle tire, but way shittier.
