Custom Plus Alloy MTB Rear Wheel

Custom Plus Alloy MTB Rear Wheel

PLUS tire widths range from 2.8"- 3.25" which are  significantly wider than standard mountain bike tires, yet not as cumbersome as Fatbike tires. A larger tire contact patch provides improved stability allowing riders to conquer more demanding terrain with greater safety and confidence. Novice riders will enjoy a shorter learning curve, while advanced riders will appreciate the additional traction and corner speed in loose conditions.

Rim width is crucial to optimizing sidewall stability and ride quality with Plus tires. Our custom handbuilt Plus wheels are available with rims ranging from 30mm-45mm internal width.

Note: Most plus specific bikes are designed around Boost hubs for improved wheel stiffness and tire clearance. Wheelbuilder offers Boost hubs (110x15 front, 148x12 rear) in all custom MTB builds.

If you have any questions regarding Plus wheels, Boost hubs, tire options, or additional customization, please contact us

Suggested internal rim width by tire size:

  • 2.8” tire: 30-40mm
  • 3.0” tire: 30-45mm
  • 3.25” tire: 40-50mm
