what size generally do you use?

Post  hockeyrick on Tue Feb 27, 2018 3:24 pm

Hi Guys
Does 5.10 fit the R? What do most of you guys run? I have been a 4.60 guy but like to go bigger.
Will it fit no problems?
Opinions, chirps?

Gallons I think, so a tank.
But, Hockey, if IMS says it fits it surely will?

Had a 5.10x18 Bridgestone m22 on mine and it fit and worked great. For the metric guys it's the same as a 120/100x18. Old school USA markings I guess. I have not seen that on a modern tire for many years.

Strange how nearly all tyres have their width in metric and the diameter in inches.
I usually use a Mitas C02 120-90-18 and for a relatively narrow countermeasure it looks like a tractor tyre when fitted and probablty the simialr width to a 140-80 - 18 of some other makes.
