Do you guys have any experience with bigger tyre size on SuperSocos?

Β 

I wanna replace my stock tyre on my TC to 100/80-17 in front and 130/70-17 in rear.

(The exact tyre will be the Continental ContiTwist Sport)

Β 

thanks in advance

@gyorgy if you want to change tires;

I took the opportunity to get som more speed and a more accurate speedometer (TS shows 14% wrong as stock - means that if it shows 51km/h, real speed is 45km/h)

A tire calculator can give you the numbers to measure if a bigger tire will fit or not, rear fender for TS is quite narrow! https://tiresize.com/calculator/

I change the height profile in the rear from 70-90, gave me 4cm more in diameter, motor revs drops from 556 revs/km to 521 revs/km, can gain some extra range also!

Have not done so many trips yet but theoretical increase in speed unless rolling resistance and torque are affected, calculated on the perimeter only;

500 motor revs/min = 8,3 revs per sec & perimeter 1,796 m = 14,9m/s = 53,9 km/h
500 motor revs/min = 8,3 revs per sec & perimeter 1,920 m = 16,1m/s = 57,6 km/h

Difference 3,7km/h... always something πŸ˜‰
