Due to their two-part construction, Vespa rims are designed so that it is possible to change the tyres yourself even with a minimum of tools. Another advantage is that the Vespa generally has the same rim at the front and back. This makes carrying a spare wheel particularly worth it as the rim can then either be used on the front or rear. In principle, the rim should be checked each time the tyres are changed. Rust in the rim well is often the reason for leaky inner tubes. Our cheaper replacement rims make overhauling unattractive in most cases.
The size specification for the rims is always given by us in inches, abbreviated on the product description with inverted commas (for example 8" = 8 inch). The width of the rim is just as important as the size specification. This is also given in inches (for example 2.10).
The construction type must be noted as a further distinguishing criterion of the rims. Depending on the brake drum used, there are both closed and open rims. In this way, for example, except for the Vespa Super 125-150, all vintage models use closed 8" rims. You will only find a 9" rim in the case of smallframes.
Rim 10", closed for GS150/VD1T/VD2T, conversion rim 8" to 10"
In the case of this steel rim, affixing is carried out as with the normal closed 10" rim of the Vespa 150 VGL1 using 4 bolts. The only difference is the star-shaped pattern on the left outer side of the rim.
This rim is frequently used as a conversion rim for the closed 8? models. Please note, a track offset does result in the process however!
SIP TIP: Don´t forget a new 10" tyre and tube! Due to the conversion the gear ratio is changed. A modification on your gear box is neccessary!
