Rim "RACING" for Vespa 50-125
-TS/150 GL/GS VS5T/Sprint/V
2.10-10", open, chrome,
FOR RACE USE ONLY
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", open, aluminium
We offer this aluminium rim in three different designs and various colours.
The "Rush" rim resembles the original rim. The additional struts and the aluminium used allow this to have a considerably more solid effect however.
In the case of the "Ceres" and "Racing", the brake drums are covered. The "Ceres" with a rather closed look and the "Racing" as a spoke rim make the Vespa a real eye-catcher!
Due to stability reasons the inner half is made of steel, just the outer (visible) half is made of Aluminium.
However, all of these are aluminium rims without ABE (general operating licence) and are therefore not permitted according to the STVZO German road traffic regulations in Germany.
