New to MTB, would like opinions of these tires on craiglist at $5 each -
I would like to mount WTB 1st Gen Weirwolf 26 x 2.1 UST with tubes on my regular rims. (Iím totally new to the MTB arena, so bear with me pls.) The question is, can I use them on standard rims and use a tube? Why would I want to? Because at $5 a tire, this would be a great way to try different tires for light snow, gravel, or trails. They sound like good tires. And they match. Iím a roadie, so if I want to go fast Iíll be on the highway. Winter riding is probably going to be cold, wet, dirty streets and whatever snow I can handle. Luck that snow usually means warmer weather. These tires have 80% tread.
Also from the same seller has a single Continental Diesel 26 x 2.5, and a Geax Barro Mtn 26 x 2.3 wire bead. Any reason I cannot put the Conti on the back and the Geak Barro on the front? These have 100% tread.
