Looking for some help for determining chainstay clearance prior to buying tires.

Can someone please give me diameter measurements for a 26" Nokian Gazzalodi 3.0 mounted and inflated wheelset please?

Also, do you get a true 3" tread, if so what width rim are you running?

Thanks!

I have the specs right here: http://www.mtbtires.com/specs/nokian.html on a 26mm rim. Can not have the numbers on a wider rim at the moment.

OOPS! I just noticed I have a big typo on the outside radius measurement. I need to remeasure that. The rest are correct.

EDIT: typo on chart fixed

Thanks Shiggy. That is what I was looking for and should have been looking at your website; duh! :eek: So, is the 402mm axle to tread tallest point correct? 804mm diameter?

No. The 402 is a typo. That would be a diameter of nearly 32"! I need to remeasure.

Just saw you are doing a snow bike. I will mount my Gazzi 3.0 on my 45mm rim and get back to you.

Thanks a bunch Shiggy! Pretty close to a 29er ;) I appreciate the efforts and it looks like I will have plenty of room. May I ask which rim you used?

Funny, those were the rims I was looking at too!

Thanks again.
Probably from the same place I bought mine.

I hand polished mine. They are not anodized so you should at least wax them.

BTW they weigh 800g each. Not bad for such a massive rim.
