    Largest tire for a Dahon Silvertip?

    Does anybody know what is the largest tire that can be fitted to a Dahon Silvertip folding bike? I think the current incarnation is the Dash P18. I'd like to know if 20" Big Apples will fit.

    The Silvertip runs V-Brakes and 406 wheels, so BA's should be no problem.. the Dash uses the 451 wheel size, so BA's aren't available..

    Dahon Dash does come with 406 wheels. 50mm wide Big Apples do fit.
    You can upgrade it to 451 wheels (with narrow tires) nevertheless.
