View Full Version : Dumb question. 23x3.5 front rim, will 3" wide tire fit?

Like the title says. I'm trying to find a tire that's kinda knobby but they all are 3" wide.

Are u sure the front rim is 3.5"? Or was yer old tire a 3.5? 3.5" is a standard rear rim size for say... A Harley with a 16" rear. If it's a front rim that previously ran a 3.5 tire then it'd definitely accept a 3.00.

Considering its a 23" wheel, it's probably a dirtbike rim with a real skinny rim width 1.75"-2.15"Anyhow... 3.00 will be fine. It's confusing kinda b/w old tire size ratings...new size and rim widths etc.

Its a 60 spoke chopper front rim, its really 3.5" wide. I bought it new and never had a tire on it. All the good knobby tires I found are 3" wide. I'm about to buy a tire and wanted to check before I paid for it.
