Replacement Tires

Its time for me to get some new tires. The moped says they require 2.00 - 17 tires. I goto mopedwarehouse.com and look for them. And all they have is like 2.25 - 17 tires? Can I get them or will they nnot work? Will I have to start looking into rims and stuff too or whats going on?Btw, its a 78 JCPenney Swinger 2. Thanks

Re: Replacement Tires

The 2.25 x 17 will fit, but cheng shin do make 2 x 17. Ask your local motorcycle shop if they can order them for you. My local Cycle World ordered them for me. Bruce

Re: Replacement Tires

personally, if I could find a 2.50x17, I'd go for it. Cheapest way to pick up cheap 3-5mph...

Re: Replacement Tires

How does a wider tire increase your top speed?

Re: Replacement Tires

is TALLER and wider, therefore changing the OVERALL GEARING.

this is true, check other posts for the proof...

i would get the sava(sp? sawa?) tires from mopedwarehouse. i've been through too many cheng shins, only rated at 40mph. whereas the sava 62mph served me better, and my tubes!

Re: Replacement Tires

So I don't have to get 2.00 -17 tires? The 2.25 or the 2.50 -17's will work too? I mean thats all I want to make sure of.
