    where can I buy this exact....

    tire?



    "The WTB Nano Race 29er 2.1″ tire features an Aramid bead, DNA rubber, and a lightweight casing. The Aramid bead and lightweight casing definitely help drop weight, and at only 560 grams this tire is light and fast and definitely intended for use as an XC tire."

    Are you just looking for the side wall look?

    Because the nano hasn't changed much since it's inception. Its pretty much the same tires its always been.

    i believe this is a different model nano, it differs from my other nanos.
    it may be superceeded by now, not sure.
    I have one and i want another just like it if they are still made.

    WTB switched suppliers a few years ago. May have changed the tire dimensions a bit.

    Tires also expand a bit with use, so a newly mounted tire usually look smaller than a well used tire of the same model/size.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Sure, that is straight off the WTB web site and for the current production versions.

    The tires in your pics were made several years apart and in different factories.

    The one with the blue label is the older version. No longer made. Not available.
