Hiya,

Can get a good deal on some Panaracer Gravel King slicks (new) in 650B size, but they are 48C, and not the typical 42’s that most people use.

Tried searching and checking various sources but couldn’t find a definitive answer.

Anyone able to provide a Yay or Nay as to whether they’ll fit ?

Oh, and still the std wheel set.

Thanks

Michael

Cheers, that looks tight. Currently have Schwalbe G-one allround (38C) and Maxxis Detonator 1.5" (limited choice with limited time and limited budget), but looking at next replacement.

700c x 48mm tires will not fit on your 650 *B* wheels.

Um yeah, but wasn’t asking about 700x48c, was along about the 650bx48c.

So ....
