September 11, 2019 at 1:50 pm #269995 triton189 Just my opinion but I don’t see dropping to 2.8 being a problem on that size rim. Plus tire sizes differ by model and manufacturer, the rekons could be the same size or close to the 3.0’s your replacing. September 11, 2019 at 3:22 pm #269997 xbd Shouldn’t be an issue. September 12, 2019 at 9:27 am #270031 Rob Ames thankyou guys i feel more confident in making the purchase of the maxxis tire now!
