    Default Which cx tyres with crest rims?

    Hi! I'm looking for a new pair of foldable clincher cx tyres for my bike, which has stans crest rims. Right now I use michelin mud2, but because the rims are so wide they become too wide (34-35mm), and the threading doesn't go down on the sides which causes less than perfect corner grip. I was thinking about maxxis larsen mimo cx 32, which seemed promising in that they are narrow and has fairly wide threading, but they seem to be out of production. Any other nice really narrow all round/mud racing tyres out there?

    if you liked the mimo, then look at the Maxxis Mud Wrestler

    They look nice, but it says that they are 33mm. Are they narrower in reality? Mounted on a normal road rim the tyres I'm looking for would have to measure something like 29mm to be UCI legal on the crest rim. The panaracer cross blasters also caught my eye, and look to be really narrow. Does anyone know if they are?

    Are you doing UCI races? I thought production tires were pre-approved (or pre-disallowed), so all that matters is the number on the tire, not the actual mounteed width.

    At the bigger New England UCI races, the UCI/USAC officials have a go/no-go gauge that they check tires with during staging for the elite fields.

    How about the Clement tires?

    I do a little bit of racing in the swedish championship for men above 30, in which UCI regulations apply. I am quite sure it is the measured width at the starting line that is regulated.

    Edit: Missed roseyscot's post. Will look at the clement tyres. Haven't heard of the brand, so maybe they are less common over here.

    Used those wheels with the Maxxis Raze tires. Good stuff.

    FWIW, I had those Crossblasters mounted on a 24mm WTB rim and they measured out to about 30. Pretty light and grippy but had two flats in the back so decided to go with something more robust... and I'm only about 140 lbs...

    The NEW Schwalbe Rocket Ron CX tires measured out at 33mm on my Stan's rim. They work pretty well as a mud tire.
