    27.5 Commuter Tires?

    Anyone?

    A friend wants to convert a 27.5 HT MTB to use as a commuter through the winter.

    I'm not finding anything.

    Thanks!

    Look for tires with a 584mm bead seat diameter, the ISO or ETRTO number.

    I am a 650B commuter and found these, everything from skinny 37mm to a more normal 54mm width. I think I might go with something like a 47mm.

    http://www.schwalbetires.com/bike_ti...n_420]Marathon HS 420 | Schwalbe North America[/url] available in a 44-584

    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/c...28945]Schwalbe Big Ben MTB Tyre - RaceGuard | Chain Reaction Cycles[/url] 2"wide tire

    http://www.conti-online.com/www/bicy...urride_en.html available in 37,42 and 54 mm widths

    Theres a few more choices on the Continental bicycle tire website. Definitely more choice this year than last.
