Hey guys I just wanted to know why people sometimes have a huge back tire and a small front? The bike I just bought has this set up lol was wondering what the benefit was? Also take a look at mine the tire sizes are real diff the back is 20x2.25 and the front is 20x1.96

Usually it's the other way around, big tire in the front, small in the back.. never knew anyone who put the bigger one in the back haha. I don't know about others, but I ride a bigger tire in the front, smaller in the back, just because it feels like it makes footjam tricks easier. Could just be something in my head though telling me that but yeah.

It sounds like that would make foot jams easier for some reason lol I know what your saying and yeah I don't know why the f they did that.... Looks weird to me lol

probably just didn't know when they bought a new tire there were different sizes, or for some other unknown reason. you can always swap em and put the bigger one in the front

Can I just get like 20x2.10 for front and back or do the rims matter? Know what I mean? Lol

If so I'm just going to pick up some white gusset pimps I always liked how white tires looked also I was having problems with my hazard v3 hub so I think I'm just going to get a whole new wheel off danscomp for like 100 bucks

The mission wheels are ok for 100 $ but try to get your ody hub fixed my mission wheel outlasted 2 hazard v3s at my local park but its nearly the same internals.Gusset pimps are like budget tires ive always heard but that might be some other tire with a similar name.

I would just get a rear hub then, and have it laced to that because that's a great rim. check out the Cult Match cassette, it's $119.99 but it's bombproof

I would either get it fixed or get a new hub tbh. If you decide on a new hub someone on here might buy your ody v3 in the bmx stuff for sale section if you want to get a bit of the money back.
