BRIT BIKE RIDERS I need wheel/rim advice..Dunlop WM3-18

The Previous Owner of my 1973 Moto Guzzi Eldorado(Yes you read that correctly!!!!) put Dunlop WM3-18 rims on my bike.

These rims had 2 rim locks on each wheel and 4.10-18 Shinko E705s

I want to get rid of the rim locks.

I want to run Pirelli MT66 sized 120/90 and a 100/90-18 .

Do you see any problems with doing either of those things?


Any advice or concerns are welcome.....Alan

The 120 rear might be getting a little too wide for a WM3, there are sizing charts out there.

On my bmw, I find that it's a lot more fun to ride with the originally sized skinny tyres......

I've been reading that some year Nortons came stock with these rims....Alan
