Can I replace the rear tyre of Honda Shine SP with a wider tyre?

1 Answers

Changing a bike’s tyre with different width tyre is not that simple, a lot of things need to be taken into account before going for such modification, as tires ‘grow’ at speed – temperature and centrifugal force cause a spinning tire to be measurably larger than one at rest. Tires that are too wide can hit swingarms, chains, or driveshafts and can change gearing ratios and speedometer readouts, and can also contact fenders or swingarms. The designers who engineer bikes usually are highly trained, and they apply that training to find a tire combination that accents a vehicle’s virtues, and minimizes its shortcomings, so our advice for you is not to experiment with fitting a different dimension tyre, the tyre designed by manufacture is the best for your bike.
