    Intense tires are pretty wide. Maybe a 2.5 in the front and a 2.35 in the back.

    def a 2.35 in back. Also be sure to get the fro lites. There isn't much need for the 4-ply casing IMO

    yea the fro lites are out of my budget, was looking to get michi dh comps but those are effin expensive too. i might just run my 2.35 tioga factory dh's they have a heavy sidewall and still are folding

    2.5 front 2.35 back. What I'd do.

    No DH tubes.

    Depending on how heavy you are. maybe 2.7 2.5 combo iono.

    Yes. Maybe 2.7 front and 2.5 rear. Another option to think about.
