    Kenda Kross Plus 700x40 Tire on a 29er

    Can I run these tires on WTB Dual Duty FR 29er 28mm wide rims?


    Can all 700cc tires be used? I am trying to spec my gt Peace 9er for a 50 mile race.

    what does the x40 denote?

    29er rims ARE 700c.
    700x40c will work fine on your rims.
    Is it a 50 mile race on the dirt?
    If so, you'd be better off with knobbies, like a Kenda Karma 1.9.
    They are as light or even lighter that some cross tires. They will be way faster and ride better on the dirt.

    40 the width of the tire in mm, just as 2.0 is the width of a 29x2.0 in inches.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
