    Max tire size in 2015 Trek Farley?

    I am shopping for my first fat bike, primarily as a snow bike to extend my riding season here in New England. Since I have heard that the newest larger tires offer better snow flotation, I am curious about the Farley's capacity. I have read on various posts that the 2014 can accommodate up to a 4.0" Nate; is the same limit true of the 2015?

    Yep. Prolly draw the line of a rear at 4.0". However I have heard of people running buds and Lou's on the front of the stock Farley...

    I haven't seen anyone fit them yet, but Trek stocks the Vee H-Billie and Bulldozer which are both 4.25s. Does that mean they fit? who knows

    There's at least one forum member running Dillinger 5s tubeless on his Farley.

    I decided to get a Dillinger 4 for the rear just to be sure.

    What about the 27.5 Hodags, can it fit on these older Farley’s?
