I have a Lectric X Premium with 4x20 wheels. Can I put the 3 inch tires from the Lectric Cargo bike onto my 4 inch rims?
 
Well I got no replies here but Lectric confirmed I could put 3 inch tires on my XPremiums 4x20 rims
 
I been fine, just thinking on getting rid of those squishy low pressure balloon tires and replacing them with more of a street tread with higher pressure rating to roll a little easier with my behemoth weight (260lb). Wasnt sure if my rims were too wide for a narrower tire
 
I had to do the same on my aventon aventure. Didnt like the whole balloon tire feel while riding on the streets.
 
I don't do big 20" wheels, but if it were me I'd be looking for something with a thick tread. If its a street bike, something with a semi-slick tread. I can link stuff I like the looks of but thats not going to be experience talking.

Go for it! I appreciate it
 
I was looking for a good 4" street tire but decided to go for these. Reviews say much better handling and easy fit on 4" rims.

Hey guys built a 26x4 Mongoose w 48v 1500w VM rear hub. I want suspension on the front but the bulk..... Why can't I put 26" forks that fit a 2.8 rim for the 26x2.8 Veetire Street pattern. What fork dropout width would I vee looking for in a fork ?

Dropout width should not be the deciding factor. This Wren Inverted can go to 100mm dropouts and can take a 3" wide 26" to 29" tire.


I am guessing you just haven't looked around enough. BTW this was the fork I was going to use on my Mongoose Envoy. I have the fat version on my Big Fat Dummy and its incredible.
 
I just wanted to slim up and lighten up the front a little. I was thinking the 26x2.8-3" tire on a 26x 2.2125" wide rim. I saw some ppl say the 26" fork was really tight so I was wondering if I should be looking for a 27.5" fork w the rim/tire size I want. She's still under construction so be easy on me

So I have 2 Mongoose hitch bikes w hub motors, my neighbor and I doing a team thing. If I just grab the 4" wide suspension first to be easy lol, what are any options on these two forks considering the price. I only have $100-300/week to spend on something ebike

It's gorgeous.... Out of my price range though
 
I know the midframe triangle is NON EXISTENT! but that is why I want to put 26" front suspension tubes on that are ....what 110mm dropout width? Instead of the 135mm fat suspension

Oh, so you replaced a 26*4 tire on your fat bike with a 26*3 tire on a 4 inches rim and it fits all right?
