The Maxxis Overdrive Excel is loose-fitting enough for a Sun Rhyno Lite 26" rim. By the way, I measured the 2 inch version at around 50mm at 40 PSI which is very close to the 1.95" maximum tire width recommended for the Rhyno Lite rim.

Hi bikers,
Anybody else happen to know a specific make and model of tire that fits easily on a 26" rhyno lite? Those maxxis overdrives don't seem to be available. looking for something for pavement riding. I've tried a few different tires that i had around and they all were painfully tight, to the point where fixing a flat on the side of the road wouldn't be too feasible.

Don't know specifically for a rhynolite, but I used to have some 26" Schalbe Big Apples that weren't tight to get on wide cruiser rims.
