Tyre width recommended by Mantel
Good MTB wheels can make a considerable difference to any mountain bike. Good mountain bike wheels are lighter, stronger, stiffer. They make climbing easier and give you better control on challenging descents. With a set of tubeless MTB wheels you can get the most out of your ride. You'll go faster with less rolling resistance, much more puncture resistance, and even more comfort!

What tyre width will fit my new MTB wheels?
We have determined the most suitable tyre sizes for all wheels, based on their internal rim width. We have mountain bike wheels with internal rim widths ranging from 19mm to 30 mm. The 'Mantel Recommended Tyre Widths' are our own advice where we assume the most optimal fit for the best ride characteristics. Attributes such as stability, comfort and aerodynamics are taken into account here. You can also see which tyre widths the manufacturer recommends. This is usually a wider range than our own recommended tyre width, because our own advice assumes the most optimal.
What hubs will fit my mountain bike?
This depends on the bike; for most bikes, this is described on the dealer/manufacturer's website or in the bike's manual. If you cannot find this, you can also measure this fitting width yourself. First measure the space between your fork's legs. Then measure the thickness of the axle. Now you know that your axle-system width is, for example, 100 x 5mm, 100 x 15mm or 110 x 15mm. Then measure the rear hub spacing and the diameter of the axle. Common results are 135 x 5mm, 142 x 12mm, or 148 x 12mm.
