New White Wall Tire Sizes Coming Soon. From Vee Rubber.

If there is somebody who has complained a lot to manufacturers about the lack of choice for sizes of white wall tires, it’s me. Coming from Vee Rubber, the giant manufacturer from Thailand, expect to see the arrival of new white wall tires in sizes we need since a too long time.

For sure, a 130/70/18, 150/60/18, 180/50/18, 120/70/21, and a 130/50/23. And because these new tires will have the load rating to handle heavy motorcycles, it means that even touring bikes will be able to roll with white stripes. Wheels manufacturer MetalSport is involved with Vee Rubber in this project, and will be the exclusive US distributor. Availability should be around August of this year.

    That 23″ is especially great news, or it would be had i just not picked up an Avon 23 this week.

    isn’t the 120/70/21 WW already on the market though? I have seen the odd one around.

    I hope they are Radials! No one said they were or they were not! Goldwings Tires are Radials for sure.

    What a weird pic for them to send a whitewall with a billet wheel. I think they look far better with spoke wheels and would look much better on the triumph below.

    I though Doug McGoon was the one that started that white wall thing with Vee Rubber, I have tried to get a hold of him for months now, no word on an eta??

    Sam, I believe you are correct about him making that happen with Vee Rubber, however, he is no longer with Metalsport.

    Here is Doug’s contact info. Mobile Number:424-202-2334 You can also reach him on Facebook.

    Hello, I spoke to Doug and he said the deal fell through. What a shame. Does anybody know about any other manufacturers of white wall tire in the 130/70r/18 and 180/60r/16?

    I think it would be awesome if we could get together and have raised white letters and optional whitewalls made.

    Face it, this is 2011, the 21st century, we can do a lot of things. This should not be that hard.

    Vee Rubber dropped the ball and could not deliver the product up to standard, I have not been in the loop, but I am working on a solution to this problem, that may very well take care of all white wall issues.
