The tyres arrived yesterday, fitted this afternoon.
Compared to the Panaracer Fire Fr 2.4's these are a lot narrower (as mentioned, the Fires measured up as a 2.6), with a lot more frame clearance and also a rounder profile.
Now to try them out (which should be Friday).

Makes you wonder how companies measure their products :?
Is it the outer points of the tread or the casing???

It's the widest part of the casing, but still varies between manufacturers :?

Let us know how you get on

Sounds about as accurate as tyres for the car and at least you get an aspect ratio with them .
