vintage tires

Post by bobthebuilder » Sat May 06, 2017 4:15 pm

I've got an 87 Vir that i'm wanting to put vintage tires on for that oldschool look. Building a bobber. I need help! I've been to coker, revzilla, and any other on line place that i can think of an am pointed towards and cant find 140/90/15 rear and 90/90/19. Anyone have any luck finding these sizes so I can get moving? I was hoping for the firestone or Shinko 270 look.

Thanks,
Bob

Bob,
Standard tires are:
100/90-19 Front
140/90-15 Rear
These sizes are available for your Virago. You just have to search the internet for various tire manufacturers that produce these sizes. However, White Raised Letter tires will be harder to find.

To find tires with a specific look that you want is going to be most difficult. You may have to compromise on the look you want.
