Tyres for Kestrel 66

Post  bessybarnett on Thu Jun 20, 2013 8:41 am

Help!

I am looking to replace the tyres on my Kestrel 66. The ones on at the moment are Avon MK11 - Front, and Dunlop rear!! The sizes are 2.75 - 19, and as the major manufacturers have not made that size for 30 odd years, I guess the only alternatives are either 'Cheng Shin' or 'Mitas'.

Can anyone offer me any advice as to which ones are the better quality, if there are no other alternatives?

Thanks for any help.

Pete

Hi Pete, I don't know which to go for, have a look at what the Bantam boys are saying about them. Mike

Thanks Mike.
 
It seems that the Bantam boys prefer Mitas for both quality and price

I have used 300 x 19 they do fit but are close inside the guard.
