    New question here. WT Maxxis Tires on 25.5mm inner width rims?

    This question has been going around some threads here, but I haven't seen definite answers so far, especially for the case of my rims and terrain type, particularly.

    I have Stan's Flow Ex 25.5 inner width rims on the front, and SunRinglé Inferno 25.5 inner width rims on the rear.

    The terrain pattern in my local trails is mostly gravel/loose/loose over hard and a few rocky parts.

    So I am looking for lower pressures in order to get a better grip and traction.

    I currently use a Minion DHF 2.3 up front and Michelin Wild Grip 2.35 in the back, but as they are getting worn I'm planning to switch to DHR II 2.4 WT rear and DHF 2.5 WT front.

    Will these rims be a bottleneck for the performance of these tires? Will I be able to ride just fine with them at lower pressures? I'm 5'11, 170 lbs btw, if that matters for this.

    I think they're fine, I ran 2.5 dhfs on Dt Swiss ex471 (25mm internal width I think?) and liked it!

    I'd say get them and try them. If you want to spend the money and take the weight hit, you can always get some cushcore inserts and run really low pressure. My understanding is that the inserts also help prevent fold over at low pressures in addition to protecting rims.
