    Idea! Looking for Urban Tires

    Hello all. I'm in the process of searching for new tires for my bike. I have a 27.5" x 2.10" rim size and I'm struggling to find urban tires. I'm looking for tires similar to the Schwalbe Big Bens or Schwalbe Moto-X. I just can't seem to find any tires similar to these in my size. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I would check the B+ threads. That is bigger than traditional 27.5. Most 27.5 wheels are like 27.5x1.0". Traditional 650b rims can run anything from 1.9"-2.4" wide tires. You typically have to measure the actual wheel dimensions with a caliper to see how wide the rim is where the tire sits.

    You are not looking for a plus size tire. Why do they have to be the same size as your current ones?

    I posted this on a different thread and forgot to update this one. I found the tires I want, and Iím wondering if a bike that came with 27.5 x 2.10 tires can fit 2.40 inch wide tires.

    Don't cross post. Your question is involved. I would talk to your LBS.

    That would depend on if it fit the frame. Got a ruler?
