    The normal tires (1.95-2.10) are on 575 rim and I want to run a 2.25 tire.
    Do I need a wider rim for this size tire?

    Thanks,
    >jef.

    Front tire -oversizing. I've mounted my F 2.10 rear.
    Now I want to increase my front tire size, 2.25 is the next size I can find.
    $40=sick kevlar dh\mud tire.

    I'm not sure I can return a mounted tire.

    The 2.25 isn't that big of a tire. Mount it and enjoy

    Ive got Panaracer Fire FRs on my Mavic X223 rims with no probs at all so you shouldnt have any probs with a set of 2.25's aslong as they fit your stays.
