Best tires for a 16 inch rim?

Looking for nice grippy, yet long lasting tires for a 16 inch spoked rim. I made the mistake of accidentally ordering a set of Gazelles for a 17 inch rim last night so now I need suggestions for the right ones.

the pirellis are the shit

Re: Best tires for a 16 inch rim?

make real sure that your bike can fit 16x 2.5's before getting the pirelli's. Some they fit, some they dont.

See what your bike has now.

Colby is running those perelli's on his new ST. They looked great.

Will 16 x 2.25 fit on this '94 Tomos Targa? Right now there are 2.25. My new tubes are for 2.25 and 2.5.

thanks for your help!

Yes!! Pirelli's ML75 are the SHIT!! 2.5 16's will fit the Tomos. Supa grippy, but tire life is to be determined. It is a softer rubber compound giving you better grip but at the cost of tire life. Also 1977mopeds have Shinkos for sale. The tread pattern on the Shinkos look very interesting. But haven't really heard any reviews about them.

I made a typo.. I meant 16 x 2.5 fit on the Tomos Targa?
