Stupidity gets you 2 of these:
I also have a 3' Arrow Widebite, it's 66mm wide when mounted on my rim. I could run it @ 8 psi w/o hitting the rim but would get pretty squirmy, I liked it best at 11. It has a much rounder profile, grippier, heavier, stiffer sidewalls, and an effective larger diameter. The extra inertia made it harder to change speeds (both good and bad), harder to turn at high speed, & climb on unless I maintained a moderate constant speed, after which it became slightly easier to climb. The rounder profile made it turn better by leaning, but harder by pivoting, which I attribute to the extra grip. The effective larger diameter increased speed but made steeps harder (which were plenty hard for me already w/ the Kenda).
Overal I preffer the Kenda, since I don't do drops and the benefits of a 3" tire aren't worth the downsides for me, so I put the Kenda back on. Also I don't know if it's just that I got used to the square profile, in addition to the turning differences, it seemed to deflect off the sides of rocks and follow ruts less than the rounder Arrow. It would be nice to have a bit more cussion, so when I wear it out I'm gonna get a 2.7" Maxis High Roller.
Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere. If you can ride where you are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the time do it along the way.- Bob Burnquist
