Kreidler Tire Recommendations

Chris Harrington /

I'm looking to replace the original tires on my Kreidler MP-19. They are 2.25 X 17 and have a fairly tall sidewall. What are you Kreidler guys using? I am reluctant to use Gazelles as they have a short sidewall and are a bitch to install (I don't want to damage those sweet 5 spoke wheels). Any and all help is appreciated.

I say gazelles.... impervious to shit.

Re: Kreidler Tire Recommendations

Go with Gazelles. I have them on my Kreidler and love them. My Kreidler loves them as well and they are a little bit of a pain to get on but just go slowly.

The best part of a Kreidler is the chrome tank. Why?

OK, the Gazelles are cheap and strong. Will a 2.50 X 17 Gazelle (taller sidewall than the 2.25 Gazelle) fit inside the stock fenders with out much modding?

Re: Kreidler Tire Recommendations

Because the chrome was all scratched to hell and back and there were a couple of nice dents as well. Trust me if it were nicer I would have left left the chrom and altered the paint job around it.

Is anyone running Gazelles in the 2.5" X 17" size on a stock MP 19? I'm wondering if they will clear the fenders etc. Thanks.

After staring at mine eight here.

I say yes. The front is iffy. But close

Re: Kreidler Tire Recommendations

I'm running stockish generic 2.25" up front with NOS Continental 2-3/4" on back. Works great except for occasional rubbing on the rear fender (pretty wide tire), diameter of the tire clears the swing arm with little to spare. I don't see a problem running 2.5" front and back.

Alright, thanks for the input. I ordered a pair of 2.5" X 17" Gazelles today and, hopefully, won't have to do much bending and grinding on the Kreidler to make them fit.

Re: Kreidler Tire Recommendations

do not grind, just bending on a Kreidler, and it will love you.

Thanks to all who encouraged the Gazelles in 2.50 X 17 size. I finally got them installed and they fit perfectly on my stock MP-19 without any modifications. No rubbing anywhere. Thanks to leaving them out in the heat, no issues with installing them on the pretty wheels. Easiest tire swap ever.
