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......

Pakrat,I think the 3.25 Speedmaster is the "skinniest" 19 incher you'll find.I just had one of those in my hands two hours ago.I also favor skinny tires but I have to say this one looked really great ! The rest of the bike has to match the tire though if you know what I mean...if you want the skinniest tire at all,this one probably won't make it.I think it would look really cool on a "Hot Rod" type of bike with a short fork.I didn't like those tires too but that changed today.Like I said,you have to build the bike around it.
Other only choice would be to go for a 21 incher with an 3.00 Speedmaster.Have one on my bike too.A 2.75 Speedmaster would be even more cool but hose are hard to find...just ask Danny F.
Yes, it's hard but I got a NOS 2.75-21 Avon on my chop now ! :D
(thanks Yard Man) But, when they made those 2.75-21 speedmasters, they ALSO made a 2.75-19 and a 3.00-19 speedmaster..! And I'm almost sure that finding a 3.00 (or even 2.75) in 19" size is not as hard as a 21"...Ebay nights, hello! (by the way..I'm looking for a 1.40" or 1.50" front 21" rim, 40 holes..)

Did you check Haan wheels?

They had a 21" 40 spoke WM1 on stock! (well... not anymore)
I didn't check for WM0's, but I guess he could get them as well.
Yes I did call Weird Haan, he checked during my phonecall, he had two 21inchers (40 holes) in 1.60" (WM1) in stock, I have four WM1's in my that didn't helped...
Knuk, I can get 21" 40 holes 1.50" (WM0) Radelli's...but I need to take at least 50 of 'em before they start production...:(

This may be a long shot, but check out this web site. They stock a bunch of strange tires (tyres?).

Lambrook Tyres
Yep, you got a couple options right there in 19" rib designs..2.75 & 3.00 Avons also..
