What is the fattest tire that will fit on a Tour with new (deluxe) fenders? Will the Fat Apple 2,35x 20 make it?


TIA

The Big Apple tires will fit with some adjustments. They are 20 x 2.00.

"fit with some adjustments" is fairly vague.

Can you be a bit more specific please - especially for those of us who have invested in the deluxe fenders?

It's not an issue on the front tires. The rear tire has issues because of spacing. If you have horizontal dropouts on your trike it is easier because you can adjust the wheel. If not then you run the risk of the tire hitting the fender, whether it be on top because you spread the fender out too flat or hitting the front of the tire because the fender is only clipped on and it has slid forward.

That being said, it can be done and I believe there are some forum members who've done it and are completely satisfied.
