More Swinger questions

Hello im wondering if anybody has, or if its possible to put knobby tires on a rigid Swinger1? If the frame is narrower than that of a maxi? Thanks.

Re: More Swinger questions

Of course. Not sure about the width you can go with but there's lots a tires! Could probably go with anything 2in. Possibly 2.25, maybe 2.5-2.75 with swingarm stuff

Re: More Swinger questions

I would do nothing larger than a 2.25 in a knobby. It will likely extend out to 2.5 to 2.75 with the outer knobbies. Go with a golden boy or there are some tires that have a good tread profile but are not knobby, like the Michelin gazelles. But those too run wide at the outer edge. My 2.5 gazelle tires fit more like 2.75 almost 3.

Re: More Swinger questions

Okay thanks. I was thinking of going no fenders with the knobs but well see. I cracked open the case today and surprised that is almost untouched.

If you use a smaller diameter rear wheel you can fit a fat knobby on the back. I have a 14 inch on the back with a 3-inch knobby

Not my bike, but from the look of it it seems so. 241’s have a more street tread than 244’s

Re: More Swinger questions

If 241s barely fit, i wonder if 244 would be too tight? They look a little more badass.

241 2.75-14 SECTION WIDTH IS 2.75"

244 2.75-14 SECTION WIDTH IS 4.1"

I have the 244 x 2.75 on my chopper. ^^

It only fits with the 14" rear pulled way back. I took some measurements and took a gamble. The 244 is mean as shit though.

Re: More Swinger questions

What fender are you using on that chopper? Im waiting on 244 in the mail. We shall see what happens shortly.
