With the bigger section tyres I take about 3 lbs off the recommended pressures. ( Better ride) Nev

I am looking to buy some new tyres as well. But it seems difficult to find the 3.25 version of the Mitas in Belgium. Should i take a 3.0 or 3.5 instead for the front tyre?

there is a little known, well in the U.K anyway, German company named Heidenaue, or similar, this company makes all kinds of tyres and at differing sizes, they are damn fine tyres and not to expensive, just a heads up and my twopenny worth.Kind regards

I too am a Heidenau fan. Have them on our heavy old lump of a 1960 Scott. Excellent grip and low wear rates

Tyre sizes are generally shrinking so if in doubt go up on specification. The WM2 rim will suit the 350 tyre and probably be OK for the "modern" 4.00. Nev
