Hello Aprilia lovers,

Perhaps a stupid question but anywone try a 120/70-180/55 tire?
I know the steering get slower but i like the rear view of a 180:fangs:

I looked at the rear-end and i think you have enough space or is this a problem?
It is for my not a issue with the steering and mostly I drive like a old:eek: because on the road you will have sometimes 3 or 4 places with police and speedcontrol Gatso and Laserpatrol:soap:

I like and need mine license and here in Holland it will cost you a fortune or a visite directly to a judge.
It is better to kill someone but speeddriving and you are a criminal and asocial.:whiner:
Big money for the governement and..........:blah:

Regards Heri

180 tire on the Pegaso rear rim is not a good thing to do, it will make the tire
change his shape like a mushrom and you will feel like you are falling in the curves.
The 120 on the front is alowed also by Aprilia, the front rim was designed for it.

Allowed are (Aprilia Handbook:tired:

front: - rear:
110/70 ZR17 54W - 160/60 ZR17 69W
110/70 R17 54H - 160/60 R17 69H
120/65 ZR17 56W - 150/60 ZR17 69W
120/65 R17 56H - 150/60 R17 69H

And - nope - I dunno wether these pairings are obligatory, but I presume they are, Watson :rolleyes: :blah:
