I am currently running PR3s with tubes on my Thruxton (stock wheels). I have no fitment issues, they handle great (dry and wet), and look fantastic! Good luck.

Did you have to change the inner tube?

I changed out the tubes and rim strips, but only because I wanted new ones in there since I was swapping tires anyway. Just a matter of personal preference. Thruxtonbill is right; you will be fine just changing the tires without worrying about the tubes.

Would all bike shops be willing to install non stock size tires?

Cannot wait for the spring to come, so I can justify to spend money on new tires when ridding more.

Any one has photos with the 150 rear? How does it look?
