Wide rear DP tire, what are the advantages/disadvantages?

Recommended Posts

I laced a 21 inch excel rim to my 2005SM and simply kept the back SM wheel and installed a 5.10-17 Kings tire. I'm not expecting this to be a problem on the street (am I wrong here?) but was wondering if it would be a hindrance on single tracks and more technical trails??

Your gonna loose the side lugs. It makes it really tricky when climbing around a puddle or going over a berm at an angle. I tried it for a while, but I have the 2.15x18 back there now. :thumbsup:
