New spree owner What and Where Tires

Post by Super79Dave » Thu Mar 14, 2019 7:30 am

Hi just bought my first spree and first scooter.
It's 1985 with the 10x2.50 tires.
What and where do I purchase new tires.
This will remain stock minor restoration/maitenance.

Greetings:

Lots and lots of websites sell tires, some with free shipping. FROM READING ONLY, a 2.75 should fit and be a nice upgrade adding a bit more Cush to the 2" of undamped front suspension travel. For example, here.

As Wheelman said, a lot of options online. I'd buy a pair of tubes and some motorcycle tire irons and replace them yourself; it's not difficult work. The 2.75 will fit; it gets close to the fork in this case.

Is this the best place to order tires from. found some on amazon but was concerned they were pocket bike tires and tubes.
was really looking for the one stop shop place for all parts, tubes and tires and known good fitment
read the threads where sizing was an issue between manufacturers.
also i am in canada so our dollar sucks and shipping/duty is an issue.

Your local tire store should be able to get them for you as well. My recommendation is the Kenda K329. Comes in both 10x2.50 and 10x2.75. It's what I use on both of my Spree's.
