what about 2 sets of R wheels- street and mud tires?

Recommended Posts

Lots of threads about swapping between X and R model wheels to have both street tires and off-road tires.

What about getting an X bike, and a second set of identical wheels? Then I could run AC-10 mud tires for the Hawaii slick clay trails, and run stock tires on my commute and around town. When the stocker's wear down, get some stock sized tires that are more asphalt oriented.

Or I could just wear out 10 sets of mud tires on the street for about the same price and not have to swap wheels.... I won't ride aggressive on the street with knobbies.

Good luck with that. AC-10s aren't even made in any 17" diameters, let alone for 3" and 4" wide rims.

Good luck with finding any mud-worthy front tire for the 17x3 front rim.

Ooops, typo- What if I got a 250R model with knobbies and had another set of off-road wheels...
