    Arrow racing frx ?

    I want to buy a set of arrow racing frx rims, the only problem is that they are 28 mm wide, am i going to have a problem running these rims with my 2.8 michelin front tire and 2.5 minion rear tire. Also are these good rims.

    The Maxxis will work easy, the Michie though will be very rounded. I run 2.7 Timberwolf's and like a slightly rounder profile and they work great for me. Fantastic rims btw!

    Super strong rims.

    I should add that I'm running a fat 2.35 DMR Moto digger and they're working well. Never tried them with anything bigger.

    I have the 2.8 Comp 32 on a 28mm wide DT swiss 5.1 rim (front) and it works well for my AM application. Of course YMMV if your doing huge drops or gaps.

    I have a 2.7 Maxxis on my frx rear rim right now, its been working, but I will use Maxxis 2.5s in the future. The 2.7 is just a bit too big so I don't think a Mich 2.8 will work very well. I will stick to 2.5 or smaller which is ok with me.

    I have a couple days on it at Keystone, so far so good...

    You could get something a bit wider for the front rim if you're set on keeping the 2.8.
