I am rebuilding a Sears (Gilera)106. The pile of parts that I bought did not include the rims, the manual says the originals were 17" x 2 1/4". All I could find at the local boneyard were 17" with a measured width of 2". I have a pair of 17" x 2.75" tires laying around, are these too big to mount on these rims?

Mr Average,

The rims-2"-are a tad to big for a 2.75 tire. try locating a 1.6 or 1.85 rim to mount a 2.75 tire.
