Schwinn Stingray tire

I shoe-horned a Stingray tire onto a standard 20" diam. x 38mm wide double walled bmx rim, which was laced up to the 48 spoke Torker DX crankset from a 24" Torker. So now I have a fat-tired 20" torker DX. I didn’t know if it would work, but the tire and rim are quite compatible. Took a little rubber off the tire sidewall with a grinder to make it all spin properly, but now I’m really happy with the result. It floats nicely over the rough stuff and sand; and if I air up the tire a bit, it works fine on the pavement as well. It’s a little bit heavy, but looks really cool. :sunglasses: So, if you have an extra rim and a frame with lots of room, go buy a tire and tube from Wal-mart and give it a try!
