hey all,

my build project for winter 2010 has the bi-product consisting of a set of mavic x223's...i am changing over to a 650b wheelset yet would like to use the x223's as a spare set for winter riding...

does anyone know how wide of a tire i can mount and ride on a x223...? kind of lookin for a fat floater 2.5+" if possible...?!?!?

I used to run Geax Blade 2.25" (huge, probably closer to 2.4" wide and very tall) on X223's and they would roll if I cornered hard. That said, if your riding on snow which I assume why you want fat tires, your probably not cornering too hard.

Otherwise they would float over everything...great tire, I wish they made them for 29ers.

you are correct...snow ridin is on like donkey kong now since the pugs have done their duty...

i currently run a 2.35 nev in front and was considering going to a 2.5 up front and moving2.35 to the back...

was there ever the occurance of the tire rolling completely off...? i have had no issues at all with the 2.35 up front...knock on wood...
