Two Different Tyre Sizes?!
« on: November 13, 2012, 10:56:23 AM »
Well lately I've started on back wheel stuff; mega spins, peg wheelies in circles, g-turns on back wheel ect... But after switching to 1.75'' tyres I've been sliding out of the carve ins to the tricks.


For example as I go throw my back leg around and bring the bars up the back wheel just slides across the floor and I fall.


I was thinking about sticking a 1.85 or 1.95 on the back and keep a 1.75 on the front. Will this cause me problems or does anyone else ride like this? I'm not sure if its the grip or the way I'm doing it or a combination of both. The tyres are second hand and look like there's plenty of grip on the sides even though the centre is slightly bold.


Cheers P.

its happen to me too before so that I change my tire to 1.85 much bigger less slide or fall and of coarse its depends on what brand you want to use :-)

Thanks for the tip mate, I'll give it a try next sess. The tyres are Odyssey Pytle or Pylte?

Cool mate,if that doesnt work then think about changing your tires not the size,i ran 1.85 for a bit and found them to be really slow with 110 psi,changed to 1.75 suelo tires and with 110 psi they are super fast and really grippy,at the moment they are half price from 39.99 to 19.99 each in winstanleys.

Cheers man. Mine's a bit slow as my tires are only 100 Psi as I don't trust the tubes I have at the moment. Do you think I would progress faster with slower thicker tires or faster small tires? I'll check out winstanleys as well thanks! :)

primo comets or E-omets in 1.95 are great for grip!

i've ridden 1.75 up front w/ a 1.85 on the rear for years, it won't cause ya any problems.  i think if you use just a little less force with the 1.75's you'll get used to then in no time

I run 1.95 on the back with a 1.75 in the front, only downside is it looks goofy, but shouldn't be a problem otherwise.

Thanks man I thought it might throw me off a bit with the two different wheel sizes but everyone seems to agree it works well! :)
