I'm running a 2.35/2.25 combo on Valor's. I run 21/25 PSI and weigh 145 pounds.

Hi,

im thinking of the same tyresetup, but not sure about the rim. What do yout think? Will the arch ex with 21mm inner width from my original wheelset from the 2015er FSI be enough for an 2,35 Ardent race? Is it worth to change the rims to the wider Arch MK3 with 26mm inner width?

How many PSI do you drive normaly with the new setup?

Im loving the grip and traktion of an wider tyre with less pressure too.... :thumbup:


Thanks for comments.
I think 21mm internal width would be fine to run 2.35 Ardents on. Of course as I was building a new set of wheels so went for the wider (albeit slightly heavier option). I say give it a go and see what you think. I might try the 2.25 Ardent race just for a comparison later this year but for the time being Im loving this combo. I run 21psi front and 23psi rear and i weigh on average 140lb (63.5kg).
