Wheel sizes and what tyres sizes can be fitted
Permalink  
 


Confused is not the word😂😂😂 Having spent the last 21 years riding the same road bike and therefore the same tyre sizes, looking for tyres for my Raid is a confusing place to be

The recommended sizes are:      f   3.00   - 21  51p    r  4.60      - 18

Fitted tyres are:                        f   90/90 - 21  63p    r  110/100 - 18

 

Looking through off-road tyres, there are many sizes, and a guy on here has fitted   120/80 - 18 on the rear

I've never been off-roading

I don't mind a lower profile tyre as it's tippy toe at the moment (with the lowering link fitted and forks lowered)

Can someone give me a list of sizes that are ok to use? 😊😊 Thanks

It's not quite as simple as just going by the numbers unfortunately. As Steve says, a 130/80 dual sport ish tyre like the Mich Anakee Wild or Heidenau K60 will fit fine, but if you go for a road legal enduro tyre, the knobbles stick out from the main carcass of the tyre much more. Maxxis IT range for eg 110/100 is as big as you could go.

90/90 is fairly standard on the front.

Are you looking for knobblies or more road biased?

Strange thing that the front seems to be on the wrong way, I checked the directional arrow, but it looks like the tread is the wrong way round when it is notconfuseconfuseconfuse

By the way, don't think you would get bigger than the 130/80 rear in there.

Found this on the net 

Off road, the rolling direction is far more important, as the tread ensures optimumconnection between the tyre and the ground. The rear wheel transmits the driving force and the front wheel transmits the braking and steering forces. Driving and braking forces operate in different directions. That is why certain tyres are fitted in opposite rotating directions when used as front and rear tyres.

I seem to be having a conversation with myselfbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Your googling beat me to it!
Could also think of it as the rear tyre drives (puts the force into the ground) while the front is driven (ground "puts force" into the tyre) As your description puts it - the forces acting on the tyre are in opposite directions.
Looks good anyway - ready for anything you throw at it!

Mossproof, more road biased. I like the look of the Anakee🙂

That's what I am hoping for, more road bias, but they look like they will still go up a mountain!

Anakee Wilds good off road with decent on road manners. Maybe Continental TKC70 more road biased if you're not heading into the greenery, 130/80 or 120/80 on the back still as big as you would want to go.
Whatever you buy, they'll wear out so you're not stuck with them forever!
