    ogre 29er wheel upgrade

    i recently got a surly ogre and im wanting to upgrade to a wider wheel
    anyone have any suggestions on a good wheelset.

    this is bike is going to be a do it all bike i ride on the road,singletrack,hardpack,loose over hardpack.rocks, roots,small drops and jumps most about a foot or two nothing bigger because im not real sure what the frame can handle,and i also plan to try my hand at some bike packing which is why i got the ogre and not the monkey.

    also any thoughts on a wider tire would be appreciated, the factory tires are ok but if i could get a hair more grip it would be great but i dont need something as severe as a nevagal type tread. anything around in a 2.4?

    I ride a surly karate monkey currently with velocity P-35 rims and Maxxis ardent 2.4 inch tires. I primarily ride the bike on singletrack but it also gets tapped for a bit of bikepacking. I have really enjoyed the wider rims combined with fat tires. They have great traction, cornering, and roll relatively fast when setup tubeless.
