    Tire size differences on my 29er

    Stupid question. I'm a newbie so to speak. Can I run 29 x 2.2 tires on my wheels that currently have 29 x 2.1 tires on them. I ran across some new Specialized Compound Control tires free from friend.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    Yeah you should be fine. Look at the stock wheels and measure the width of the rim if you can. I wouldn't go with anything larger than a 2.2" tire on a rim that measures less than 19mm wide.
