    Marathon Supreme width?

    Hi all,

    Am looking for some wider tyres for my road bike so I was hoping someone could give me the pumped up with of a Marathon Supreme 35mm tyre so I can see if it will fit.

    Many thanks

    Prob about 32.

    I have some marathon Racers, says 30 on the box, and 28 on the tire. Go figure.

    I have Supremes on my bike, on 18mm wide (internal) rims. The 35s measure 35 with 85 PSI, and the 40s measure 40 with the same pressure.

    My Supreme's are 35's and measure 35 with a 19mm internal rim and I'm running 65 PSI front 70 rear. Both measure the same.

    If 35 won't work for you, my Conti Touring Plus 32mm measure 30mm at 75 pounds. Good puncture resistance but seem to be wearing faster than my previous XRs. But only half the price.

    The Supreme is the best tire I've ever owned. Excellent on paved road and forest service roads. Also can handle all weather conditions.
