Tyre size (MTB)


Recommended Posts

It's time for new tyres (26") and I'm thinking of going the Mountain King/ Race King (front/rear) route.  What sizes would you recommend?  2.4/2.2?  2.2/2.0?

I do mostly long distance riding (45 to 230km), but like bombing it on the downhills so grip is NB!


Any suggestions?  What are you running?

Nice choice of rubber.

Recon the 2.2 / 2.0 should work just fine.

I only run a 2.4 if its muddy as hell.

you're not gonna ride long before you will have to replace the Race King if you do that kind of millage. It's got very shallow knobbies. Mountain Kings are not bad on the back if you turn them in the opposite direction to the front ones.
