18 inch knobbies

Chris Carleton /

Trying to get a grip with this Boxer. Best possible case would be some 2.25 x18 knobbies. Saw some 2.50 x18s but look too fat for my tastes. Are they even made in this size?

Just mount the 250s and take a bit off each side with an angle grinder , while the wheel is spinning .

It's been done before . ;)

I have also seen this done to car tires with a good vegetable peeler.

I put a set of cheng shin 2.75x18 knobbies on one of my bikes and they’re pretty narrow. It’s a a true 2.75 width and 2.75 tall from the rim. Really nice grip in mud. Way better than the Shinko 244s that used to be on this bike.

There's a little difference between a full knobbie and a dual sport . LOL

Here's a 244 :

Okay?

Obviously the tighter tread design will fill quicker ...

For comparison sake . Supporting your claim to mud performance .

Remember that not everyone knows the difference . ;)
