    Looking for wide 27.5 tires

    Hello cycle freaks!

    I have been pouring through the tire websites, then it dawned on me to let you guys do it ;-)

    Anyone know of any slick or slickish 2" wide(+/-) tires for riding around town?

    Thanks!

    Most slick-ish tires are much narrower to keep the rolling resistance low. How come you want wide? Shock absorption?

    Kenda K838s. 1.95 in wide, but that is as wide a slick I could find when I was looking to buy.

    Oh, never mind. You're looking for 27.5s. Not sure you'll find any of those.

    GuitsBoy, I want a lot of volume as Im a big guy and like to do little stair gaps, driveway jumps and hops and stuff. Plus I think they look cooler!

    Timothy, i found a couple: Schwalbe Super Moto-X @ 2.5" and Big Ben @ 2" in case u were interested.

    Thanks guys!
