Tire width ? on Crossmax SLR

2644 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  SHICKS
I am considering a used set of 2008 Crossmax SLR's. I currently run DT Swiss X430's with 2.25" wide tires.

My question is how wide of a tire can I properly use on a CM SLR? Will a 2.25 or 2.35 fit without issues?

Thank you.

The inner width of the SLR is 18mm. I run a Mavic 819MX rim with an inner width of 19mm and the max tire size is 2.3. I think 2.25 tire is pushing it on the SLR. 2.1 sounds more like it.
I've been using 2.3" Speed King SS tires
on mine without any problems.

Best, John
There's no problem using a wide tyre like a 2.25, however there will be considerably more tyre roll in the corners than with a wider rim. 2.0/2.1 is what the SLR is designed around
Thanks everyone!!!

I can live with a 2.1, just got used to the volume of my 2.25 fat alberts.

What would be a reasonable price to pay for a set of 2008 lefty SLR's?
