What tyres can I run? So many choices! A 25mm internal rim typically works well within a range of tyres from 1.75" - 2.5" (44mm - 64mm) A 30mm internal rim typically works well within a range of tyres from 2.3" - 3" (58mm to 76mm) Some narrower tyres on wider rims will square off too much, and some wider tyres on narrower rims will fold and squirm due to lack of sidewall support. This is more common at the extremes (eg a knobby 44mm on 25mm internal width)
Why brass nipples? Although brass nipples are slightly heavier than alloy nipples, they are far less likely to suffer corrosion and premature failure. They are durable, serviceable and ideal for extended usage
Can I customise the build? Definitely. Dirt Hoops are available as rim only. You can then configure your wheels any way you want. As long as your hubs of choice are 28h.
Why only 28h? We believe 28H is ideal for most off-road applications. Through a custom build you can obtain a competitive Weight Weenie-ish XC configurations up to super robust expedition strength wheels.
What tyre pressure to run? We get asked this so often! Follow the guide on your tyre and have fun experimenting +/- a few PSI's for feel. The tyre should feel responsive, provide ample grip and be hard enough to not bottom out the tyre on the rim on rocky terrain. Lighter riders can afford to run slightly lower pressures, whereas heavier riders should err towards recommended pressures.
