Due to their two-part construction, Vespa rims are designed so that it is possible to change the tyres yourself even with a minimum of tools. Another advantage is that the Vespa generally has the same rim at the front and back. This makes carrying a spare wheel particularly worth it as the rim can then either be used on the front or rear. In principle, the rim should be checked each time the tyres are changed. Rust in the rim well is often the reason for leaky inner tubes. Our cheaper replacement rims make overhauling unattractive in most cases.
The size specification for the rims is always given by us in inches, abbreviated on the product description with inverted commas (for example 8_ = 8 inch). The width of the rim is just as important as the size specification. This is also given in inches (for example 2.10).
The construction type must be noted as a further distinguishing criterion of the rims. Depending on the brake drum used, there are both closed and open rims. In this way, for example, except for the Vespa Super 125-150, all vintage models use closed 8_ rims. You will only find a 9_ rim in the case of smallframes.
Rim 10", open, SIP
Our own steel rims are Made in Italy. The highest quality, no sharp edges and well thought-out down to the last detail. In this way, in the case of these rims, unlike some previous reproduction rims, the studs are only installed after the chrome plating or varnishing. This guarantees simple assembly of the rim without any annoying shearing of the thread bolts.
Our rims are equipped with a discreet SIP logo. In addition, the registration of the rim is made easier thanks to a highly visible, stamped rim size.
To ensure that you can make the most of your chrome rim for a long time, we recommend continuous maintenance of the surface using NEVR DULL chrome polish.
