    26" x 4.0" bicycle road tires would be insane! :)

    2.5" Maxxis Hookworm's fit on 4" wide rims as very cool low profile tires or
    on 3" wide rims as a higher profile. Lots of racers are using these combo's.

    Fat bike street tread tires are usually made for smaller than 26" rims because
    they end up as 29" in diameter.

    these Schwalbe,Jumbo Jim,26x4.8 are humongous and expensive at $112

    I found something interesting. I got the fat tire setup originally because i wanted a tire that would take cracks, small bumps and just in general ****ty roads a bit better. I didn't want knobbie tires because they would wear out quickly, and ride differently than a nice set of road tires. I'm not a racer, but i'm looking for a good set of road tires that capitalize on the softness of the fat tire. then again i will be running 212cc Predator. haha

    I doubt if that 26 is a bicycle rim size and they are $191 tires!

    They carry what you desire but they might be out of business????? Been waiting to order for 3mts. Ordered a few yrs ago and was happy with the order. I got a set of 20x4 rims tires and tubes with trike axles.

    I'm actually looking for 26X4 as opposed to 20x4. but thanks for the response, the thought counts. I had seen their site earlier but didn't find what i was looking for.

    You may be right about that, i'll have to contact them and see if they can give me some measurements on it.
