I'm finding that after you mount a new tire and check the width, it's a lot
smaller than the width they write on the sidewall. I feel a little cheated. If
you pay for a 2.6" wide tire I think you should get a 2.6" tire. I purchased a
Kenda Kollosal 24x2.6", mounted it on a 24x1" wide rim with a standard 24x2.1"
inner tube, and the tire measures at a little under 2.5" wide.
I understand this happens in women's fashions, but it does not happen often
with guy's stuff.
Is there something I'm missing here? Maybe they mount the tire on a certain
size rim with a certain size inner tube and if you do all that then you get the right
width? Or does it have to do with temperature, where the hotter the air is the
wider the tire? Is there some standard that tire manufacturers use when stating
Is there some shrinkage that occurs from the manufacturer to when I receive the
P.S. Does anyone know if Kenda has a web site? I can't find it.
