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.
