largest tires for MA40'sDave Hickey
Jun 5, 2001 6:32 AM
I'm building an "around the block" bike for my wife. What are the largest tires that will fit on Mavic MA40 rims? I know I can get 25c on them. Will anything larger fit? Thanks

I think you'll probably be limited by the frame before the rims. On my old winter training bike, I ran Continental Top Touring tires that were at least 700x32c, if not larger, on MA40 rims. Great tires, BTW, highly recommended. I think they've changed the tread design, though, and now call them Top Touring 2000.
