    Here is the tire I ordered
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A4BG9LE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    130/70R12

    Here are the specs for the scooter
    http://www.icebearatv.com/product/PMZ150-17
    Tire size(Front/Rear) 120/70-12

    I agree that it does look like more than 10 mm difference. The oe tire is worn in the center but not much on the edges. I will measure the tires.

    I will change the tire in a couple of weeks after the 120/70-12 and the exhaust gasket arrive. Just want to have a new 120/70-12 on hand if the 130/70-12 doesn't fit.

    I hope it fits with no issue.. it's going to look great with the bigger tire.

    The oe 120/70-12 is 110 mm wide while the 130/70-12 is 130 mm so about 3/4" wider but it sure looks like more.

    That is why I am waiting until I get the new 120/70-12 just in case the 130/70-12 is too big.
    The OP did replace his tire with a 130/70-12 and it fit. He seems to have gone away. Hope he is OK health wise.

    Tires! Received the 120/70-12 today. Obliviously the OE 120/70-12 is smaller than the new 120/70-12.

    I put the 130/70-12 tire on the rear and it fit just fine. Think I will fit a 130/70-12 on the front too.

    I can feel the difference in height with the new 130/70-12 vs the old worn-out 120/70-12. Seems to ride just fine.

    I need to get her to come do part of the 4K maintenance on my scooter. I can handle the oil change but need her to check/adjust the valve clearances.
    Will post photos of her doing the work. :rofl

    Unfortunately I don't need her as the valves clearances were in specs. :dirtdog
    All done with the service but raining so no riding.

    I would like a tutorial on how you mounted the tire. I need to change my rear reflex tire- same size and bought a set of tire spoons. Never changed one.

    I always look for videos on YouTube because I don't change tires that often and always learn something new. Look at several
    For example Google how to change scooter tires
    Here is one

    AS far as removing the Reflex rear wheel this was the closest I could find. This guy was removing the disk.

    I just put a 130/70-12 on the front so the the tires are the same size front and rear. Will give her a run tomorrow assuming it is not raining. Yesterday we had 3.44 inches of rain thanks to Tropical Storm Beta. The creeks are roaring. Returning the two 120/70-12 tires.

    Took a ride to Deal's Gap and didn't notice any difference in the handling with the bigger front tire. Big crowd there of Harleys and sporty cars so I didn't bother riding over the Dragon.
