OK, I have no first hand experience of these rims, so I am not qualified in any way to comment on their actual quality, fit, form, function or performance. However, my general experience of purchasing scooter parts is that you should buy recognised makes and brands and that buying cheap parts generally results in dissatisfaction due to poor product quality. So for a safety critical item as wheel rims are, I would recommend to your friend that he considers buying SIP or Pinasco rims. There have been many reviews of these product offerings from these two manufacturers in the scootering press.
I wish your friend luck in his quest to buy tubeless rims.
Think my mates getting tight in his old age, he was saying the other day, that he's spent thousands on scoots and parts since I got him into scoots, I got my first one 1981 and it took me 5 years to get him into them, I think he's holding it against me lol.He owned a scooter shop in the 90's and I was his Vespa mechanic 😵. He has 3 Vespa scoots and 2 lambwettas😉 at the moment, with a garage full of spares. I think I created a monster😱.
I've pumped my SIP ones up once, that's when they went on, genuinely worth every penny. Think I paid just under £100 for the pair. I guess the "pressure" is on with a decent option, I'd buy the SIP ones again as I would be a little "deflated" with any others. I suppose you have to "pump yourself up" to make a good choice.... That's all the jokes I have, I'm running "a little flat"...... 😆😆
Ironsloth, How do you find the folding pegs if carrying a passenger ( if you do?) and they have their feet on the pegs and your putting you feet down to keep the bike upright whilst stopping etc? I always feel when a passenger has feet on standard running boards it's an irritant as not enough rooms available. All the best. Jim.
I have size 13 feet, and these footrests keep passengers feet from t**tting the side panels like a 3 year old, and give me all the room I need for my bloody great hooves. Brilliant piece of kit. And use the stand bolt holes too.
Those are the jiggers, but I found two pairs in the back of a garage, they wanted £15 a pair I think. I was naive at the time so I bought them, worth every penny. I did try a fixed set on my mates T5, but the dam things kept getting in the way.... So I asked these scooterboys near me who run a garage, the rest is history. Garage by the way is called C&C, Boston, specialists in Volkswagens and Vespas, (cheap plug 😁). Another plug (while I'm at it....), Lincs Lambrettas is my local, being in spitting distance of it....
I have a pair of these rims, yes they are cheap and have only been using them for a month now. Haven't had any problems with them so far, they don't leak and the finish is good, I have a pair of fia italia rims on my small frame and the finish is no better
