How much does tire weight matter in a rear tire. I mean I am looking at the Maxxis IT, and the Dunlop 952, and the IT is 15 pounds. Its heavy for a rear tire. I heard one guy had to change his suspension setting for the IT. Circular weight in a tire is a lot diffrent than 3 extra pounds in the gas tank for instance. Has anybody else noticed this diffrence? Let me know if I am thinking to deeply into this.
Dude It makes little difference. The bike has the nuts to pull the tire and your suspension shouldn't be a problem either. I currently run the Maxxis IT but have ran many other brands. I have never had a problem with a tire changing my suspension feel at all. Now maybe if the tire was like 20 pounds then maybe, but the Maxxis IT is a proven good quality long lasting tire. It's also a great value for the money. Slap one on and have fun on your bike.
