Off road/trail tire help
My new wheelsets arrive for my 28mm tires for the street. Now I am looking for off road tires. Spoke with Raliegh can get up to a 45mm on the rear.
Not sure if I should post in the MTB/Cyclecross sections but it's a hybrid. Not a lot of options for 45mm wide tires.
Also researching MTB forums suggest different size tires front and back.
would like some feedback on these tires.
Continental CycloX-King 700 x 42C black / skin cyclo-cross reflex Bike Tyre Tire
FR (use on BK also)
Schwalbe Smart Sam HS 367 Performance Cross/Hybrid Bicycle Tire 45mm
Schwalbe Marathon Dureme HS 410 Raceguard Cross/Hybrid Bicycle Tire 40mm
look at these
Panaracer Fire Cross 700 x 45c Knobby Folding Black Tire
Vee Rubber X-C-X 29x 1.75" Black Folding Bead
Clement X'Plor MSO 700x 40 60tpi Folding Tire Black
Still trying to find something 50mm front 45mm rear that's would work.
leaning towards the Schwalbes
if 45mm is the max, I'd stick with 40 or maybe 42. A) tires vary, B) you want some clearance.
