Whats up guy's...

I have a 1.5" front rim (140x19) and i'm gonna need a tire to fit it...BUT, i don't want a new style tire..
Something along the line's of a Speedmaster rib is what i'm after.

So far the thinnest Speedmaster i've found in a 19" is a 3.25..not gonna work.
I stopped at a local shop and looked through most of his books and came up with nothing but the 3.25"..and all i found on eBay was the 3.25 as well...
Anyone know of something in the 2.25" area in either a Speedmaster or similar rib pattern?

Any help or direction would be great......

thanks.

your right..it's 1 1/2 wide...and too damn narrow..
If i can't find something thats gonna work i'll probably get a 21" hoop and re-lace it to the mini brake on the wheel now..
realsitically thats probably what i should do anyway i guess..

I checked thier site and didn't find anything....
In the catolog i have from them (which is from '01) they do list a 250/275-19 Michelin and it has the tread design i'm looking for....but i didn't know if that was going to be too wide also..

I'm guessing that if it's not on the site they probably don't carry it anymore..

Well, If you are crazy enough to run a 1.5" rim, why not run a Michelin 1.75x19 Simplex Rib Moped tire?? It would look cool..........for awhile.
Not sure what the hell i'm gonna do. I know the 1.5 is gonna make things a little questionable for handling..but i doubt it's gonna handle well to begin with..
I started asking a few guy's here i know if any of them have a 19 or 21" 36 hole hoop they wanna sell....thinking i'd lace it to my hub.
but so far nobody can help..
I have a few different route's to go yet.

THANKS for all the help guy's!
