But one really doesn't gain much on the rear. Why?
Because the rear wheel rim is already 1 size narrower than ideal for the 130 width tire. When a 140 is installed it is squeezed even 'rounder' in its profile. So it really doesn't lay down any larger footprint. Does this make sense?
The 140 may or may not rub on the inside of the plastic chain guard.
