Zero XU Tire Choices

2012 Zero XU Tire Choices

OEM sizing is
Front: Shinko F250 MJ90-19 which equates to 90/90-19
Rear: Shinko SR735 110/90-16

Odd sizes limit the number of available replacements. The rear tire is very close to the drive belt, I don't think a 120/90-16 would be a wise choice due to the increased width. I think when the original tires go I'll try out Avon RoadRider AM26's, they have two fronts in the OEM sizes. Another option would be Pirelli Sport Demon, but the front tire would have to be 100/90-19 and might not fit, I'll have to see how much clearance there is with the front fender... there is plenty of clearance for the front fender with the OEM tire. I can't find detailed specs on the SR735 though, so I'll have to break out the caliper and measuring tape...
