Innova front tyre.

Post by john freeman » Wed Dec 06, 2017 11:21 am

Can I ask what front tyre Innova 125 owners are using? I can find a 70/100 on ebay, but it's unbranded and has no reviews. I've bought a Michelin City Pro for the back, but the nearest City Pro front is 70/90 - 17 - would this be ok? I've tried emailing Michelin but they havent bothered to answer. Thanks in advance.

Thanks, Onittino3. I hadn't realised that that was the same as a 70/100. I'll use that link you sent. Thanks again.

If you want to compare metric sizing then it’s easy enough.

The first number is the width in mm and the second is the aspect ratio (profile).

70mm is about 2.75 inches as as this is 100% aspect ratio is the same as a 2.75 tyre.

The width numbers never seem to work out in real life so I have taken to measuring the old tyre manually before deciding on the inch equivalent.
