Re: Optimimum tyre width for 7/8" roller
My friction roller is 1 1/4in wide and you would need a tire centered on the roller with at least that width to get maximum traction. If you have a steel drive roller like in the BMP friction kit the wider the tire the more traction youll get. It just depends on the tire you want to run. I run a 2.125 semi slick on the rear and am very satisfied with its performance......rear is also beefed up with a nomore flats liner and a thorn resistant tube with 65lbs of air in it. The stiffness helps with the friction rollers traction.
