Possible cheap knobby tires


I found these 200X50 tires here. They look to have gnarly tread. Think they'll fit?

I have 3 boards with 3 different types of tires and all are 200x50 so I'd assume they'd fit your standard 8" ATB hub.

Let us know how they work if you get them. You may want to ask about weight. If they are for go carts they might be heavy. I have 1 and 3 ply tires. It does make a difference but not noticeable enough for me as I don't do any board offs.

Got the tires. They have exact same tread as my old ground industies tires and are lighter and more pliable. Similar weight and flex to the MBS tires. Good cheap alternative to the name brand tires.
