Tire size

Any contraindication to mounting a 26x2.0 on the rear and a 26x1.95 on the front of a Diamondback Wildwood hybrid, the rear is a slick and the front is a semi-road tire. I have some tires laying around and was curious? Getting a new 2006 Fisher Montare on Saturday, cannot wait!

Thanks,

the_recluse

Don't know what a "countraindication" is but you won't have any problems riding with different size tires.

A fairly common set-up. Bigger on the rear for traction....

Better the bigger on the front for extra grip while cornering - you can control the back wheel sliding out, but not the front. However the 2 sizes you mention are as near as damn it the same.
