In this test the goal was to compare different tire and rim sizes on the Full Stache. In the first
part of this test was trying three different tire sizes (2.4, 2.6, and 3.0) on their recommended rim
sizes (30 mm, 36 mm, 40 mm respectively). Each tire was ridden on a 1.5 mile loop and ranked
on six aspects of the tires attributes.

Test 1(Control): XR(SE)4 2.4 on 30 mm rims with 18 psi


Time: 5 min. 43 sec.

Test 2(x): XR(SE)4 2.6 on 36 mm rims with 17 psi


Time: 6 min.
Noticeably gave more control on cornering and climbing compared to control.
Test 3(*): XR(SE)4 3.0 on 40 mm rims with 14.5 psi
Time: 5 min. 52 sec.
The tread felt great and climbs and handling improved from (x)

Control improved with each jup in tire size and rim size.
Part 2: 2.6 tires on 30, 36, and 40 mm rims

Test 1(Control): XR(SE)4 2.4 on 30 mm rims with 18 psi


Time: 5 min. 46 sec.
Easy to turn wheels too far/ burn out on turns
Test 2(o): XR(SE)4 2.4 on 36 mm rims with 17.5 psi
Time: 5 min. 40 sec.
Not much control while cornering and more tread resistance on hills.
Test 3(*): XR(SE)4 2.4 on 40 mm rims with 17 psi
Time: 5 min. 28 sec.
Great momentum. Had one burn out on a tight corner.

2.6 tires felt out of control on down hills. 2.4 tires felt best in terms of handling. 3.0 created the
best momentum.
