    Goblin - WTB i19 question

    I just got my Goblin a couple days ago, I am just waiting for some time from my busy schedule to set the bike up the rest of the way. However I was thinking forward, and I starting thinking about tires. I read some reviews that the i19 do well with tires up to 2.2, but 2.3's and above will not sit well. I wanted to get some aggressive wtb weirwolf tires for some nice cornering trails we have around here where I live.

    Most tires I am looking into and enjoy, I am finding out they seem to be in 2.3 or wider. Is this true about the i19 (that they can't take 2.3+)? I wouldn't want to risk the tire coming off in a corner. The stock set up will last me a while. I just wanted to get some input on whether or not I'll have to get a new wheel set in the future. Thanks in advance!

    2.3's will work, you just won't be able to run as low of pressures as you could with a wider rim

    Thanks for the reply 8iking VIIking, I'm not too worried about running low pressures so that's not too bad, I am just glad it will stay seated. Thanks again
