Thinking of offloading the 20s and dropping down to 19s or 18s.
Which will be more usable and a smoother ride.

spotted these.




At the mo the price is nearer 1.5k than 1k, but hope to work on that.

Rims wink

Super low profile tyres on big wheels offer very little cushioning over bumps and thus the rims crack as they take a big hit frown
