I want to know if anyone here have tried installing different size tires. Is it true larger tires are harder to install? Is it because your hand can't get fully around the tire while installing?

No, that is not true. Iíve never even heard that one.

People try different size tires all the time.

The only issue youíll run into is if your rims are too narrow to be running a 2.6. The tire will mount, and it will work, but it is not optimal. They are usually designed for a wider (like 30mm or more) rim.

How wide are your rims?

Actually, I was just wondering but I mean it would be more like adventure touring. I heard the Ryde Andra 40 is good but that's 25mm.
