Tire height question

1400 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Mopower71
Why do some people run tall slicks with a deep gear ratio?? Why not run shorter slicks with something more like a 3.91 gear ratio? What is the comparison? are 3.91's and 28 inch tall tires about the same as 4.10's with 29's? 30" tires with 4.56?? Do you have to run a taller tire to get the real wide slicks? Just thinking about this today and wondering why why why.

The taller the tire, the more contact patch there is
It's not all about how wide the tire is.
