Got the XCMH tires in slight issue maybe...

Recommended Posts

Will be large but I'm sure it will fit, unless you are running a short chain with axle way forward.

Got my XCMH's in today thought I ordered the 110/100 18's ended up with 120/100 18's. Wonder if it will fit?

That will be 24 mm taller than stock .... I wanted the 100/100 but could not find one at the time and got a 110/100

If you can return or exchange I would do that if you are short as the 120 will be a lot taller.

Looks like I'm tossing on the 13t front sprocket for sure...  I thought the 2nd number was the tire height. 110/100 vs 120/100 I thought should just be wider but man I don't get metric tire sizing.

The first number is the width ... The 2nd number is the percentage of the width.

120/100 is 120 mm tall .... 100% of the width

120/80 is 96 mm tall .... 80% of the width

Jesus, I could run it but it would be like tossing a lead weight on the back of the bike...  Damnit, had a feeling I should have just got the 120/80 18 Mich t63.  I can return it but it's kinda convoluted, no clue if I can just do part of the order or the whole thing.

Xcmh 120/100 is 13.9 pounds :) she's a heavy one.

110/100 is 11.9 pounds.

Should be good combo for dual sport. It's common to match a more agressive front tire for offroad with a 50/50 tire on the rear for longevity.

The first number is the width ... The 2nd number is the percentage of the width.

120/100 is 120 mm tall .... 100% of the width

120/80 is 96 mm tall .... 80% of the width

Just to clarify a little better the first number is the width in mm. The second number is the height, it is measured in a percentage of the width.

I know just a little Captain Obvious.

T63 aggressive or 50/50 leaning?

XCMH's are awesome off road ... The rear will net you 2,000 miles the front maybe 5,000 ... Tops

My front is still like new with 1,000 Street miles the rear appears to be at 60% left

Should be 14 mm or 0.55 inch taller, but tires are not always the same size they advertise.

My slightly worn 110/100 xcmh is 12 3/8Th inch from level ground to centre of rear axle with 18psi.

How do you get 14mm? The difference between 110 and 100 is only 10mm. Both are 100 sidewall aspect ratio.

OP, the bigger tire will fit.

the second number and in this case is 100 is a percentage of the first number 

 

 

110/100 is 110 mm tall .... 100% of the width ..........  the stock tire size is 120/80 is 96 mm tall .... 80% of the width 

 

110 minus 96 equals 14

Got it, comparing to the stock tire. I was comparing to what he ordered...

the second number and in this case is 100 is a percentage of the first number 

 

 

110/100 is 110 mm tall .... 100% of the width ..........  the stock tire size is 120/80 is 96 mm tall .... 80% of the width 

 

110 minus 96 equals 14
