- Best tyre for snow
I know we have the Schwable studded ones and the super fat Surley 5″ thingies.
But what about your yer run of the mill tires?
Would a 2.5 Big Earl be preferable to a 1.5 Mud Shark? Does it depend on the type of snow?
Out for a quick ride/play this evening – which will tyre will cope best in a couple of inches of snow?Posted 9 years agomolgripsSubscriber
Depends on the snow. If you’ve got more than 3″ of it, you want soft big tyres to ride above it – especally if it’s old. If it’s icy, then snow often hides ice so you’re in trouble without studs. If it’s shallow snow then it doesn’t matter really – muds are where it’s at.Posted 9 years agotimberMember
Been out to mess about, took bike with 2.35? irc kujos on, starting at about 60psi, finsihing at about 20psi due to me not being bothered to fix slow punctures.
makes no difference it seems as best way to stop is to lean bike over and crash in a big snow cloud – my other option was to hit the gate
shall take out the ss with skinny 1.9 Maxxis on tomorrow for comparisonPosted 9 years ago
