2nd Question: Will a 160 Avon Distanza on a 5" Wheel Fit on an FE570?

Second part of the equation. I have heard Distanzias are wide tires. Will this fit on a FE570?

Thanks!

-Paul

it will fit the rim, may be too big to clear the swingarm.

Well, pulled the trigger! Will post up what sort of trickery is needed to get this to work. Or if it doesn't. Haha.

Make sure you have new chain guides or your chain WILL EAT TIRE (rub side off) happen to me with the stock tire.

Chain guides have 1k miles. Should be okay?

I Ride: 2011 FE390
I tried a 160 first, but ended up switching to a 150 after the shop that did the install for the first time said it was way to tight.

I have about 2,000 km's on my 150 on the 5" wheel and it rubs very lightly w/ the chain.

Just using stock chain guides/etc... with the 160 i'd think i would of had to use something to pull the chain away from the tire even more.

2011 FE390, but swingarms are the same between all 70 degree FE's i think?

To confirm these are Distanzia tires and this was 5-6 years ago

I Ride: bikes
I run 160 tyres the chain rubs even on narrow 160 tyres but maybe thats because my chain is realy worn now....
Will replace my chain in a couple of weeks I have used michelin pilot power 160 rear (very wide tyre only 2-3mm clearance on both sides chain/swingarm) ,some goldpeed pre cut slick 160 tyre and bridgestone slick 160 tyre currently on the bike with 5 inch rim no problem I don't care the chain rubs the tyre it will never hit the rim.

Will replace chain/sprockets/chain guides/install chain block and instal 165 metzeler slick soon.
I don't think I will have a problem with a fresh chain the worn chain moves a lot to the sides....

I also bought a used rear metzeler 160 rain tyre it looks pretty big/wide but never tried it on the bike

150 tyre not recommended on a 5" rim. I'm sure people have done it and all was well, but just saying - it's not recommended by manufacturers. Flattens the profile a lot.
160 Pirelli/Metzeler slicks and wets are usually way wider than 160 Michelin. Not sure if this is also the case with their road tyres.

I know some folks index the wheel by adjusting the spokes to move the wheel to the right a bit and gain some chain clearance. Is it feasible to add washers between the sprocket and hub as well?
