The AM22 front is absolutely fine on 1.85 rim, in fact I would say they're better on one as it makes the bike more agile. I don't know about the TZs but virtually all 350 and 500 classics running AM22 fronts run them on 1.85 rims.

Thanks Will, that's really useful info.

Thanks Guys for the input. The spokes on both rims are looking a bit shabby, so your advice on tyres is pushing me toward the idea of having both re-laced and swapping out the front 1.85 rim for 2.15 whilst I'm at it, then I can run AM22's or AM22/23 combination.

Thanks again.
Rod

On those rims, I'd use Avons:

Front: AM26 (competition version) 90/90-18 (min rim width 1.85"). Common usage on TZ's for the front is the AM22 110/90VB18, though minimum recommended rim width is 2.15.
Rear: AM23 130/650VB18 Cantilever - specifically made for narrow rims. Min recommended width, conveniently, is 2.15.

Both the above are good in the wet.Heidenau also do sticky sizes that should work, and I have heard good things about grip, but wear rate is allegedly high. Continentals, in our limited experience, don't work so well on the little bikes. There are radial 18" competition tyres just appearing on the market from 2 major brands, which should be very good and cheaper, though will inevitably need wider rims.

Just my 2p
