    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.
