    Rim width and pressures (50 vs 65mm on SC32)

    I run an SC32 with a 50mm rim and a Larry - I went for the 50mm as the advice was I wouldn't get any rubbing issues, however I am missing the lower pressures I can run on the rear (80mm) rim.

    It seems 65/70mm is the widest rim one can run, how lower can one go pressure wise with that? It's no just snow/sand riding, there'll be trails too, though not DH or too aggressive.

    One benefit of the 50mm rim is I can just about run a regular 2.3 tyre if I want to (though I've not done so yet)

    I vary my pressures with the conditions. In snow, 3-4 psi; soft dirt and wet roots, 8-9; hardpack, 12-14 psi.

    I have HuDu/Knard on Marge Lites, and I run the same pressures as Gigantic. On sand instead of snow, though.
