Need traction?
So far I have rode these on only snow, both sugar and wet snow mind you. They definitely dig, haven't found their ideal psi, but getting close. They give you an extra push when you start spinning, sometimes it's all you need to prevent the "hike a bike". Definitely better than Vee Snowshoes. Steer better than Surly.

will the maxxis minion fit rear on Alaskan Alloy?
chuck on Nov 22, 2015
No.. a 4.7" tire is the max for the AK Alloy.
will the maxxis fbf/fbr fit a minnesota 3.0?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2015
The 4.8 Minion will not work on the 3.0.
ok i see a issue with a answer u gave on the AK alloy and this tire if u go to the AK and look it says it will Accomadate a 4.8 tire but i see where an answer on here says it will only take up 4.7 witch is it?????
james h on Jan 15, 2017
It is a little odd I know. Apparently when Framed added new color options for their AK Alloy bikes, they made a slight alteration to the frame..... which is what is creating the discrepancy. From Framed: "The new Alaskan Alloy frame (colorways yellow/black, red/black, white/black) will accommodate the 4.8" Minion tire."
Is this the exo tubeless version?
Cyrus A on Dec 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I received the 120 tpi model, I believe it's tubeless ready, but it's not the EXO version.
Will these Minions fit on the AK Carbon back and front (carbon fork)? If so, can they be swapped for the Framed tires at purchase? Thx.
David P on Nov 17, 2015
Currently there is not a option for ordering the Minion tires on the AK Carbon. They will fit however (front and back). If you would like to swap them out and pay the difference order through our sales people: 1 (800) 409-7669. They can get you set up!
Also can we use the same tubes as the 4" the 4.8" on the AK alloy?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
Yes, you can but it would be best to source a larger tube to ensure there is no lost space inside the tire.
I have a Mongoose Dolomite will the Maxxis Minion 26 inch work on that wheel?
devon j on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not completely familiar with the Mongoose dolomite it appears to be a complete bicycle the thing to look at is the width of Tire you are having now with Maxis measure the distance between the fork and the tire that you have on the bike right now look at what the tire is... is it a 4.0 or what width the tire is currently.. look at the space between the front fork in the tire in the rear fork in the tire that will tell you a lot also the rim needs to be at least 65 millimeters wide.. the next question is the Maxxis tires are worth almost as much as your entire bike maybe it's time for a new bike... just a thought the Maxxis tires are really good that is for sure... hope that helped
Will this tire fit tubeless on 2018 pub carbon wheels?
James W on Mar 2, 2018
This tire is not certified tubeless from Maxxis. Any set up of the tire tubeless, although it may be successful, will be against the brand recommendation.
So this tire will not fit the Alaskan alloy frame even though it says a4.8 tire will ?
Ripperdog on Jan 5, 2017
From Framed Bikes: "Incorrect. This tire WILL fit in the new Alaskan Alloy frame. The new Alaskan Alloy frame is colorways black/yellow, red/black, and white/black. Black/black and black/red will not accommodate the larger tire size."
Will these fit on a se f@e fat bike, (2015) model?
Tim B on Dec 31, 2015
I just checked with our bike shop (They have an SE F@E on the floor), and said the 4.8 Minion tires will fit just fine!
Will this tire fit on an ironhorse porter fat tire bike?
jsteffen on Dec 20, 2015
These Maaxis Minion tires are 4.8" wide.... that is fairly big. Your Porter will not have the width in the forks to handle it. Framed's own 26 x 4" tire is gaining some traction (sorry about the pun) as one of the best all around tires on the market. If you are looking to make your Porter a little more aggressive... look here: This would fit btw.
