Bell Fat TireI bought the Bell Glide 4" tire for my Rebel X Suspension e-bike.
I was looking for a tire for hard packed dirt & dirty pavement. The bike came with dirt knobs that have a heavy self-steer behavior.
Photos of the Bell tire gave me the impression it might be substantial enough for use on the rear 600 watt hub drive used on my bike, but that is not the case, in my opinion.
However on the other hand, the tread depth and pattern seemed quite appropriate for use as a front tire for my exotic moped, and I was right.
Steering and brake traction is excellent, with very little if any of the self-steer effect.
Tire weight new was 1425 grams, width is 98.55mm on 80mm rims, tread depth is 3mm max.
So while I would not recommend the Bell Glide 4" as drive tire (even for pedal power), I'm quite satisfied with the tires performance on the surfaces mentioned above, front mounted.
So I recommend and would purchase again, this tire for a like application.
