Hello vitalbmx community. Recently I bought a pair of Primo V Monster 2.40 tyres. I just loved them, good grip and very smooth landing. But there was a problem with the tire clearance because its sunday funday frame 2013, so after some days when my rim wasnt completely true it started hitting the frame. So I had to exchange my back V monster and I exchanged it with bsd donnasqueak 2.25. So now i run on 2.40 front and 2.25 back. Is it bad? Also landing isnt so smooth as it was. Can I do something about it? If I put more air in the back tire will it make it smoother ?

More air in the back tyre will make it roll smoother/quicker, but landing will feel harder. Having a narrow tyre on the rear is pretty common

I run a 2.35 in the front and a 2.10 in the rear. I like that setup myself

I ride 2.40 front and back, but I might go down to 2.20 front and back. You'll be fine with your current setup.
