Ordered the 2015 Sumo from NYCE . Been doing some wilderness stuff , but I want to commute on it since its alot faster than my bionx pl350 . I see lots of online pics with Schwalbe Big Apples fitted on 80mm fat bike rims but all the shops here say 'hell no' or good luck . There are cruiser tires that would fit that are knobby free but pretty sure they aren't so safe for e-biking 20+mph . Any Experiences ? Any recommendations or advice ?

By the way , this bike is simple and sweet so far . Like the tranzx izip tests in Courts vids it eats up hills like no hub motor and the batt bar hardly moves . Lvl 1 and 2 are really powerful . Theres only 1 straightaway I use lvl 4 to blaze home at 27+mph and this is on huge mud tires . Can't wait to see how it performs with legit road tires .

There's a lot of owner experience at the Sondors Storm Owners Group on Facebook. 4000 members and they've done just about every kind of upgrade you can imagine including tires.

Join the group and ask for feedback..They can also hook you up with their vendors. FWIW they reject negative and spamming commenters.

Thats awesome because 2 seconds ago I was reading replies in Sondors Modders Group on FB . The fb owners group seems to be hidden ,from me at least .
