    another dumb question - rim width / maxxis tyres..

    Hi,

    Right - i have these great tyres finally (its hard to get stuff in spain in summer...) Maxxis minion DHF and Maxxis High Roller for the rear - both 2.5.

    I have dt swiss e 2200 rims on the bike which are approx 3 cm wide. The Maxxis types say that they are for 5 cm wide rims... Apart from being mega-difficult to fit should these be fine on the rims or should i be looking at getting wider rims (my wife is going to kill me if this is the case...)

    thanks, Russell

    I mounted a 2.6" maxxis ardent dh tire on my 28mm rim with no problem.

    You should be fine. Plus I believe the minions and High Rollers run a little small.

    Great tires bye the way.
