I just got a Vespa Grande - and am desperately trying to learn the bike.
What are the best tires available for this bike?
And can anyone conform the sizes and variations that can be substituted?
It seems like the front tire should definitely be 17 X 2.25 - but can you also use a 17 X 2.50 in the front?
And in the rear, is the stock tire 16 X 2.50 or should it be 16 X 2.75? Or can either be used?
I haven't found any big name tires that specifically are 16 x 2.50/2.75 - however, the Pirelli ml75 seems to be some european size,.......but according to this site they convert to 16 X 2.50 & 16 X 2.75 tires - which would be perfect for the rear rim (I think):
For the front tire, the Michelin gazell (m62) is the only name brand tire I can find for the front - but nobody has them in stock and they are made in thailand (not france).
