.160 vs .190

i know that .190's are better but how much better? i ride mainly in three different types of terrian: 1) open pasture fields 2) Woods trails 3) MX tracks.

i am fixing to order the rear tires for my Banshee from http://www.rockymountainatv.com, and i can upgrade the package deal from .125 to .160 for $5 more or i can go from .125 to .190 for $20 more. i know that fifteen bucks isnt much, but you gotta save where you can and if the .160's will do what i need them to then i can save $15....know what i mean? thanks guys.

Re: .160 vs .190

Welp, you get what you pay for. .120 is weakest, .160 is middle of the road, and .190 is the strongest.

I say buy what you can afford.


Got sand?

Re: .160 vs .190

dont even question it.... .190 rims are better...I do alot of trail riding and big rocks and such can do just as much damage as jumping.... I would not even question .160s
