Innovation in style, technology and safety. Introducing our high quality, 2nd generation SIP tubeless rim to Lambretta vehicles.

No matter if standard width (2.10) or the 2.50 inch wide rims, the SIP one-piece tubeless rims promote smoother running by state-of-the-art manufacturing accuracy. Vehicles dynamic reaches a new level, providing more confidence and making forgotten the wheels vibrations of the former sheet metal rims.

The modern double-hump design of the wheel helps prevent sudden loss of pressure while riding in case of the tire being damaged. The air escapes slowly enough to enable the rider to safely bring their Vespa to a halt. Dangerous blow-outs at high speed become, thankfully, a thing of the past! Other potentially hazardous occurrences, such as a valve ripping the inner tube open or it being trapped between the wheel halves during assembly are also no longer possible. The valve is pre-mounted to the rim and long enough to be filled even with special british armature.

The surface finish is perfect due to an extensive CNC machining process. The harmonic profile and shape make the 2nd generation of the SIP rims easy to be recognized by the convenient design. They are available, painted in various colours and even a chrome one made by galvanizing.

Genuine Lambretta studs in the brake drums need to be replaced by longer studs for the aluminum rims. SIP provides a kit of studs included in every rim package, or also separate as art.no. 47161000. A mounting description in detail is available to be downloaded from the SIP homepage.

2.10 or 2.50 inches wide

The tubeless SIP Performance Lambretta rims are available in 2 widths. 2.10 is the standard width of Lambretta rims. 2.50 inches is standard e.g. for Cosa or automatic models. This allows more ready tires to be mounted safely. Warning: the 2.50 rim is not compatible with all disc brakes. With some makes, there is not much space between the brake caliper and the rim. Too little to use a wider rim. But there are also brands that can be easily combined.

4 or 8 wheel bolts

Originally the rim of the Lambretta is screwed onto 4 studs. For the rear wheel, however, brake drums with 8 wheel bolts can be installed. These should ensure greater strength. We offer Lambretta rims that can be mounted on 4 or 8 bolts.

Conclusion : An innovative wheel with a classical design. Provides a noticeably smoother ride and improved suspension performance, combined with a much larger choice of tires! Precise production, high-end finish and a completely modern level of safety features. This wheel type has successfully passed extensive long-distance and endurance testing.

Attention : Check for adequate clearance to the engine and other surrounding components after assemble of the wheel. Many tube-type (TT) tires can also be used without inner-tube (TL). We recommend tire and wheel -assembly through professional workshop. Avoid damaging the surface finish while mounting! Only use the suitable tire mounting paste. Oil or similar lubricants can remain slicky and cause dangerous dispositioning of the tire while driving!

If you wish to avoid getting your hands dirty we also have these wheels available with pre-mounted tires!
