    Widest rear tire on a 2016 sworks stump jumper 29er?

    I've got one coming and I'd like to know what the widest tire this bike could run in the back.

    Not sure if this is the right forum to ask but here goes.

    I've got a 2015 Spec Stumpjumper Comp. I'm wondering what are the largest width tires I can fit on it? If I change the wheels to a wider rim could I fit a 3 inch wide 29er?

    Agreed. I ran a Maxxis Ardent 2.4 for a short time and it rubbed under torque. No problems with a 2.3.

    Now that this has been a year. What are the widest rims that the 2016 Stumpy can fit on the 29" rims? I just got a great deal on a Stumpy expert and the XC tires the previous owner had on them will not do. I'd love to run a 29X2.5 Maxxis Rekon out back if possible.
