Tyres & Tubes & Pressure

I bought now (March 2010) new tyres from Munich (

There is a Radial tyre made by Michelin. I choose the radial type instead of the diagonal type for security and comfort, the price was nearly the same as for the diagonal type.

The correct tube for the A90 Atlantic convertible rim is the TR-15 one.

Tube TR-15

The TR-13 also fits, because its smaller, but to avoid movement of the tube, the TR-15 should be taken.
