Description: Minnesota 27.5 x 3in Bike Tire

PLUS Size is now the right size! Plus size wheels and tires are taking the industry by storm! You get the ability to switch to a slightly leaner and meaner wheel and tire set up on your fat bike for more year round traction and action with one bike!

These new 27.5 "Plus" size wheelsets refer to a 3 inch width that offers some of the benefits of fat bikes in a more manageable platform for dry season trail and all terrain use. The 27.5+ size gets you quicker handling and lighter weight than your stock wheel and tires.

FRAMED 27.5+ tire has the same tread pattern as its big brother, the Minnesota 4.0 Fat Bike tire. This 72tpi tire has tall, stepped, and widely spaced knobs for confident grip and traction while shedding mud, sand, rocks and anything it comes across. The tread wraps around the sidewall of the tire, providing great grip in low turns. Also available in complete 50mm wheel sets for 150mm front and 190mm or 197mm rear spacing.

Framed 27.5 Plus MTB Tire
This Tire Rocks. It is a bit heavy but they have Super Traction and are super fast.

Tread pattern is not common on other tires I have seen, but it seems to work just fine in packed Mud, Loose gravel/dirt, hard-pack trails, and rocky climbs. Breaking is Awesome. Tight Squirrely Turns and Fast Banking Berms... no problem, always smooth and connected to the ground.

I am running these as Tubeless, on the Alex Rims that came with the Carbon 27.5 Plus Bike. My alternate pair if 27.5 + are the WTB Rangers, which are lighter and faster, but with a loss of traction in (some) soft-stuff.

Can I squeeze a 27.5" tire on a 700 rim?
scott z on Aug 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. The Minnesota 27.5 x 3in Bike Tire fits tightly to a 27.5 rim already - being tubeless compatible it must have a tight fit. there is no room for it to easily stretch to a 700c / 29 rim.
