ive searched of course but im wondering what the max tire is i could get on a weinmann dp18
I've been asking myself the same question.
I am on 23c at the moment but was wondering if I could go up to 25 or 28 (the label on the rim stated 18c/23c...rim looks thiner that the old cheap/shit axelrim on my charge plug fitted with 28c)
Have seen people running 28Cs on them so im presuming it wont kill you.
Hi all, resurrecting this for some advice please. I've tried to fit a scwalbe marathon plus 25mm to Dp18 rims this afternoon - resulting in it blowing off the rim. I then tried to wrangle a new 25mm folding durano plus on, but couldn't get the f***er on.
I've put old zaffiros on for now, but want more protection ideally.
Anyone have any advice on a 25mm tyre that goes on these rims reasonably easily? The more puncture resistant the better.
25mm (comes up small) Maxxis Re-fuse works on DP18 and good and grippy and puncture resistant (not 'armoured' like the Marathon+ though)
Nice one thanks very much for that. Did you use wired or folding?
Only ever come across Re-fuses folding
Ah ok, thanks - not very familiar with them. They seem quite pricey but worth it if they're good and tough I guess.
Like I said, they don't feel armoured kind of tough like Marathon+, but fairly puncture resistant nonetheless. They are not at all good for skidding on. The outer coating is quite soft which makes them grippy but it cuts/wears easily (the puncture-resistant bit is underneath).
Nice one, thanks for the info, I don't skid so they sound suitable.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
