    Anyone running 2.8" tires on their Balance?

    If so, interested in your impressions and experiences.

    On my 2016 Balance, I have a DHF 2.6 up front and a DHF 2.5 in the rear. The 2.6 is quite a bit bigger. I think the 2.6 will fit the back end but I'm not sure a 2.8 would work.
    Work expands to fit the time allotted...

    In the balance photo thread Lance (flymybike) posted a pic with a 2.8 recon on the rear.

    I had a 2.6 slaughter for a while and there was plenty of room for more.

    On the front with a 2016 stage a 2.6 Butcher is a tight fit.

    I ran highroller 2 2.8 on mine fore a bit it was a traction monster! Had a good time but ended up killing the tires because the speed the balance will let you go kills weaker tires such as plus IMHO.
