    Question Biggest tyre on CD-70, CG-125, GS-150 and Piaggio

    WHAT IS THE BIGGEST TYRE YOU CAN INSTALL ON CD70, CG125, GS150 AND PIAGGIO

    Installing wider tyres not only enhances the look of your motorcycle but also radically increases grip, handling and braking. I wonder what are the biggest possible tyres you can fit with no or minor modifications on popular motorcycles.


    Share your experiences, recommendations and Pictures.

    Following are the stock tyre sizes:

    Model Front Tyre Size Rear Tyre Size
    Honda CD-70 2.25 - 17 2.50 - 17
    Honda Pridor 2.50 - 18 2.75 - 18
    Suzuki Raider 110 2.50 - 18 2.75 - 18
    Suzuki Sprinter 110 2.50 - 18 2.75 - 18
    Honda CG-125 2.50 - 18 3.00 - 17
    Honda Deluxe 125 2.75 - 18 90/90R18
    Suzuki GS-150 2.75 - 18 3.00 - 18
    Ravi Piaggio Storm 125 2.75 - 18 3.50 - 18


    BIGGEST TYRE on CD70 CG125 GS150 and Piaggio -1108169


    What Should one Keep in Mind when he plans to install bigger, wider tyres?

    What are the critical Measurements he can take before one buys bigger tyres?

    Braking and handling will get better. Most of the road accidents happen while you are braking. If I increase the grip I will have stronger braking power, thus I can enjoy the high speed with a peace in mind that I can actually stop in emergency.

    Default Upgraded Pridor Stock Rear Tyre 2.75-18 with 3.00-18

    Changed the stock Pridor Rear tyre 2.75-18 with Ghauri 3.00-18
    i personally prefer replacing tyre with stock tyre size
    but in pridor case this stock tyre looked thin to me
    and in my view this stock was not perfect for this bike
    So took the decision to upgrade it with little Fat tyre
    in previous cases i have not taken this kinda decision
    As i use to feel even little heavier may effect performance of bike

    Obviously my first concern was will this tyre fit to stock rim perfectly
    so after some searching on internet & very good help from p.w fellow BluHorn
    purchased this tyre and it has fitted perfectly & performing excellent
    there is no effect at all on bikes performance such as fuel average,acceleration,power & top speed
    Impact I would recommend all Pridor owners, They should replace their Pridor stock tyre with 3.00-18

    yes bro this tyre has certainly improved ride of Pridor
    specially at high speed bike jam ki chalti hai
    & bro it is performing marvellous while braking
    I guess it is due to its design, inshAllah if possible i will try to record video
    as while braking itne zoor se pakrhta hai road ko
    ke it burns itself aur yeh scene buhat acha laga tha
    mere doston ko, Now i don't know weather its Pro or Con of tyre

    Me too did experiment with Junoon,
    replace the stock 2.50 with 3.00 , but experience wasn't so good. I didn't feel any increase in grip, don't know why, may be bad quality rubber or something.
    Stock 2.50-18 4PR was panther, and 3.00-18 6PR was panther as well
    first 2 pics are stock, and last 2 are upgraded one.

    Gull Bhai Your Bad Experience With Bigger Tyre Size
    Had Worried Me Alot In Taking Decision Weather To Upgrade Tyre Size Or Not
    As Junoon & Pridor Are Similiar Kinda 100cc Category Bikes
    But Finally Atlast Took The Decision & Thankfully It Is Good Investment

    And currently I'am planning to install a fat 130mm or 140mm wide rear tyre on CD175 Frame....Basically to make it safer.

    This is only true with you Bobber that you will have a high speed with fat tyre but not with local bikes we have...

    When i had Honda CD-100, installed an IRC Thailand 3.00-18 rear tire in 2006 and Alhumdullilah the tire was of excellent quality was still using it when i sold my bike in november 2012, It was an excellent tire and really improved the grip of the bike, The bikes max speed after replacing the tire was 96 K.M/H on a straight road. With a very slight slope and wind in your favour it crossed 100.

    Hey Guys, the Bike is designed for 3.25 and can accomdate 3.50 and my bike was a 2008 purchase and it had a 3.25 chinese tyre as at that time I think the whole bike was comming from china or something, I retired that tyre because it went bad due to mechnic broked its wires shile opening it and when I searched market I only found the deluxe 90/90 tyre so I asked the Ravi vendors they told me that even the bike requires a bigger tyre but new bike is relying on servis 90-90/18 tyre now and no new bike is comming with the orignal chinese tyre it had.

    wide rear tire means more tread on the road, making the motorcycle want to push through turns instead of go around them. This can lead to a dangerous understeer condition.

    I'am more leaned towards a 140/70R17 at the rear and 3.50 - 18 at the front.
    140/70R17 is the the rear tyre size of a CB400.

    The CD-175 swing-arm is made to fit 3.0 - 17 whereas I'm trying to fit 140mm wide tyre ...... I'll either replace swing arm with a wider one or I'll modify the existing swing arm of CD-175.

    The engine is SR250 and its originally designed to pull a 120/90R16 tyre.

    I personally think 140mm is wide enuff to give BadA$$ looks and grip and not too wide to affect the performance and ruin the proportion of the project. People usually make the mistake of making the rear too heavy hence ruining the proportions of the bike.

    BIKER INSTINCTS:
    Thats why you have to lean into the turn rather than just steering the trajectory of the bike with the handle bars.
    I think its a pretty natural thing.....anyone who know who to ride a bike well....will do it naturally. Aint it? or Am I wrong?
