    Is a 2.25 Big Jim larger than a 2.3 Vert pro?

    I'm thinking of getting the 2.25 for the front and using the vert in the back. Any other suggestions that are

    They're about the same to my eye.

    Shiggy's website likely has the actual sizes.

    Almost exactly the same. Check my tire site for details.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Nothing schwalbe claims is right for sizes...

    the BigJim 2.25s are at best, 2.12" maximum tread width, and the racing ralphs 2.25 are a hair less than that. My Conti survival protection 2.3s were actually 2.25" tread width (all measured at 40psi on 22mm width rims).
