So If my Bmx bike's Regular Tire size is 2.35 , would I be able to switch it to a 2.5 ? Or not ?

Fucking Cult and their AK tires . They actually inflate to 2.6 .

Personally I think 2.4 is too much . If you ride them , this is what I imagine your bike if it were a person; Photo

Ive been running big tires for years now, since the premium refuse resists day...however, those tires explode easily. I truly like the huge front tire and how my bike feels. I also extended my bars to 31/31.5 inches wide.. perhaps its cause Im 6,4 .. The Cult AK tires arent as huge as what everyone may think, theyre a little bigger than most of what every company has in a 2.4 and some 2.35. Been riding them in the front for about 2 weeks now and really like them. Tires are thinner than what I thought but I have no worries on the sidewalls tearing through from grinding as Ive never had a problem with that issue on any tire. I rode an Animal MTT before this and they actually come out to be bigger than the AK tire. To the OP, depending on what tires you have now, tire clearance in frame and fork, youll probably be fine. I could run a AK 2,5 tire in a R25 fork at 100 psi if wanted and still have clearance, with the MTT, even at 70psi in the R25 I had rubbing issues.

2.5 tire at 50 psi will get the ultimate traction. You will never slip anywhere

*Insert negative comment about big tires because it's as trendy as riding them*

You won't have a chance to slip because you won't be moving fast enough :p

Not saying it to be trendy, my bike came with 2.35 and they just feel slow, sluggish, and heavy. To each their own, but 2.25 is the largest I like

And isn't that the point of big tires to give better traction. more cushin for the pushin. Because the tire is a massive 2.6 theres more volume for air to it so less of a chance for pinch flats wooo

Tire size is personal preference so that what im saying with a grain of salt.
