Hi guys I just got a set of red metal 5s and I was wondering if I can put a 2.4 nobby nic on the front rim. I know it will fit but will it be to hard on the wheel as far as the extra forces ext.

    What is the internal diameter of the rim? If 17mm is pushing it, but 19 or above should hold it better.
