Anyone know where i can buy 700x25 winter/studded tires?

a friend recommended i wait for a sale, but my bike fits 700x25 and most places that have sales on winter/studded tires are on tires that are 32+

should i even bother getting tires that narrow? should i make my own at this point?

i haven't had any luck finding so i thought i should ask here.

thanks

This is N plus 1 time. Vintage mtbs are cheap and plentiful and make great winter commuters with plenty of room for fat studded tires and fenders. You really don't want all the crud winter throws up on you which is what will happen without fenders.

Do you have snow in Brooklyn in April? Or are you trying to get an early start on next winter?

I looked a while ago, and I think the 32's were about the smallest I could find.

Years ago I found some 28mm or so knobbies. I think they're more common now with the gravel and cyclocross crowd. But that would be an option. But, I didn't find riding my bike in snow as being very fun. Fortunately in western Oregon, one has only a few days a year of snow.

Last winter I decided to try my 25mm Panaracer tires in snow.



I heard that the East had snow, but it was hard to find snow here.

That road had a very slight downhill. About 3" of snow (maybe old, but no previous tracks), over gravel. After a false-start, I tried it again with the right gearing for the snow. I made it down to the end, turned around in the soft gravel, and headed back up... and only made it about 50 feet before I lost all traction and just fell over. So much for skinny tires in the snow

Anyway, If I expected a week or so of snow commuting, I'd probably get snow tires for a MTB.

700c studded tires are not made that narrow .. 35 is the width commonly made .

My studded tire bike is 26 by 1.9 tires. MTB from the late 70's

N+1 is a solution , get the tires on sale that appeal to you, then spend the summer looking for a Bike with enough clearance to use them ..

say a single speed Cross Bike ..?
