Another tire question

    I'm putting my christmas list together right now guys because that's the only way I can justify buying anymore parts at the moment and tires are on the top of that list. I'm looking at the Britdgestone bt45's and the Avon Roadriders am26. But both are tubeless and my wheels requre tubes. I've been told that as long as I put a tube with these tires that I'll be fine. Is this correct?

    Drewpy, I've been looking for those Bridgestone bt45's and haven't been able to find them with the correct rear size. Did you order yours from somewhere in the US or the UK and also what size were you able to fit on the rear. Mine currently is running a 18X3.5 on the rear and a 18X3.0 on the front.

    there's loads in the UK, not cheap now @ £93 + fitting. 18 x 4 will fit the rear which is the same as 110x90x18
  7. The sizes you listed are the old sizes so you would have trouble finding them that way. See the link for a place where I priced a set for my '79 needing 18" front and rear. That would be 90/90 front and 110/90 rear to stay with stock new size equivalents.
