hi can you help?  I understand that the WT tyres are optimised for wider rims.

What does this mean? Is the carcass different to an ordinary tyre?

To the best of my knowledge the carcass of the wide trail tyres is identical to non-WT tyres.

It's just that the knobs have been repositioned on the surface of the tyre, they sit in a slightly different place to maximise the grip when fitted to a wider rim.

We have had quite a few customers who have bought the WideTrail tyres for ordinary, narrower rims and it seems to be no problem

Hope that helps
