    Largest tire on Riot?

    Anyone running anything larger on a Riot than the typical 2.35? Seems to be room. Interested in running one of the new Maxxis tires at 2.8 on a 28mm internal width industry nine wheel set.

    Thanks all!!

    I've ran a 2.4 dhr2 on the back mounted to a blunt 35. And had plenty of clearance and no rubbing

    You have room for a 29x2.5 dhf on i35 rim and some to spare. What are the 2.8s you're talking about? 27.5?

    Sorry, meant either 3.0 or 2.5... in 29er. Guessing there's not enough toom for a 3.0?? Will likely run a 3.0 on the front and a 2.5 on the rear.

    no way a 3" can fit. maybe a 2.6 NN would, I'd be positive. But 2.5 DHF is a great tire.

    I'm more interested if the soon to be released Rekon 29 X 2.6. will fit in the Riot but am curious if the NN 29 X 2.6 fits too.

    I do not have the Riot any more, but used to ride a 29x2.5 dhf on i35 rim in the rear with no clearance issue at all.

    Thanks for the reply. 
    Looking back Hindsight is 20/20 was the ride Quality better on i35 versus i30 are mybe something not as wide would work better? I know the sidewalls stick out a bit and the rims are little vulnerable to rocks. I thinking if I'm going to get new rim laced up i might as well go all in the dive in deep end.

    Any updates to Riot rear tire fit? 2.6 or 2.8? What have people had success with, and which inner width of rim did you use?

    No Dice. I did mine with 2.6 on a KOM i29 rim. It fits, but flexs under moderate cornering. That being said. it measures 2.55" . Maxxis SHorty 2.5 WT measured a true 2.5 and it was fine. same rim.
