3" Tire on a Stinky...

A 3" tire will be really tight on the back of the Stinky; if you get a slight bend in your rim it will rub. To be totally honest, a 3" tire is really just too big. Check out the Gazzo 2.6 or the Maxxis 2.7. The problem with 24" rims is that you're very limited on tire selection...

and a couple other tire suggestions:
Nevegal 24x2.5 - not as tall as the Gazz 2.6, but about same width.
Arrow 24x2.7
Spec Roller 24x2.6 - big paddles in case you pedal uphill...
