    Best Rim Width for 27.5 4" Dillingers?

    Hi there,

    I am looking for advice about rim width for a 27.5 fat wheelset. I plan on using studded 27.5 Dillingers (4"). What's the best rim width for such a tyre? Looking for fast rolling studded tyres in the 27.5 format. Other ideas welcome.

    Thank you.

    With studs, on ice, the more tire in contact with the ice the better.

    I'd be looking hard at an 80mm rim to go with a 4" tire.

    ^^Listen to Mike

    I tried a set on 50mm was not the hot setup ( it was fine on perfect packed snow) would have been very good on a much wider rim to work on a much wider range of conditions.

    I have several sets of different width 26" rims with various tire set ups for different conditions.....most built by Mike...
    Always good to bring the right gun to a fight.

    As much as I like the idea of BFat wheels( the 50 rims and Hodags are awesome for spring-fall)...I have too many 26 sets to totally commit for winter
    PS....Mike builds great wheels
