Re: James ml tyres.

Hi Ron,

thanks for your opinion.


regards,
Bjorn

Re: James ml tyres.

I have original 2.75 x 19 Dunlop Universal's on my WD/RE.......the James ML uses the same tyre, so for both of my ML's I've fitted the Cheng Shin block type in a 2.75 x 19.....after much searching they were the closest match to the original Dunlop's...........

It's well worth doing an extensive Ebay/Internet search for these Cheng Shin tyres......there are many suppliers (in the UK) and the price varies considerably from around £50 each to (I found) a bargain £32 each including courier delivery.........certainly well worth spending the time looking on line to save money.......

Re: James ml tyres.

Similarly, I have original worn Dunlop universals on my ML and the Cheng Shins on my Flea. Ron

Steve, do you perhaps have a tyre code I can google to compare?
As the 'Sheng Shin block type' doens't ring any bell to me ;-)

Thanks in advance!

Re: James ml tyres.

I can't think of anything that is available that is more suitable than the C117's that we've already spoken about.

But maybe look at the ones Arnaud has used!

Re: James ml tyres.

Bjorn, as Ron mentions the Cheng Shin tyre is a C117 in a 275 x 19....

Re: James ml tyres.

Yes i use these tyre, they look very good, not "too much" trial very good dimensions ( i also have an original WD dunlop) but i hope to never have to take them off, mounting is very ,very thick!!! i think these tyres are for modern alloy rims ( i've got the same on a trial bike and they fit perfect), and i think also they are not made for old dunlop rims... if you want run the bike hope you never have to puncture repair near the road!with these tyres.
after very long research by web ( china also) i only found these and some others in the states that i couldn't import, but think it's the same fitting problems.

Re: James ml tyres.

Hi Arnaud. The Cheng Shin tyres are quite soft and pliable and I've even fitted them without tyre levers by just treading them on. I paint liquid hand soap around the bead. :relaxed: Ron

Re: James ml tyres.

vee rubber are soft also, but extremely rigid and small in diameter( at the inner diameter that go on the wheel, sorry i don't have the english word for)
with these lot of soap, and heavy motorcycle tyre lever to fit on the original dunlop rims, it look like you try to fit a 18 inch tyre on a 19 rim!! strangely, they mount relatively free on Akront alloy...:thinking_face:
