Moto Guzzi Stelvio Wire Rims & Stucchi Luigi CARC Protector

Took 6 weeks but rims finally arrived from Woody's. Hold up was Excel was out of the 5.5 width rear rim, is the widest they make, or any manufacturer for wire wheels. Really like the look. Added Avon Distancia tires, 160/60 in rear, widest option I could find in a semi off road tire. Even the BMW GS 1200 is a 150/50. The Stelvio has a wide, wide tire :)

BMW GS1200 used to have a 150 tire.


Current BMW R1200GS tire/wheel sizes:

Rim, front3,00 x 19"


Rim, rear4,50 x 17"


Tyres, front120/70 R 19


Tyres, rear170/60 R 17




Depending on the diameter, a wider tire might work better.

Now, go get it dirty !
