    Can the 24x3 rear tire and wheel be substituted into a cruiser bike frame designed for 26x2 tires? Will it look odd because of the difference in tire tread diameter? Just thinking about it because I don't like the 26x1 3/8 rim I currently have on my Western Flyer cruiser. (To be motorized soon)

    The three inch tires will probably NOT fit between the lower stays on your frame. They didnt on my DelMar so I dropped down to a 26x2.125. Not alot of difference.
