Hey guys, I've been running M&H MSS-17 skinnies for several years. These are a 26" tall tire. I see M&H has recently released the MSS-24, same tire but in a 28" tall configuration.

Next time I need front tires would there be any advantage to switching to the taller tire? The only thing I can think of is that it would be easier to get my jack under the front end. Would there be any other advantage (or disadvantage) to the taller fronts?

Thanks much!

Tom

More rollout=slightly better ET. Taller tire means there is a better cushion for the car when it comes down from a wheelstand if you have that problem.

Thanks for the replies. I have a box so can adjust for the RT to some degree. Wheelstands not one of my problems, although I sometimes wish it would pull them just a bit ;)
