    Giant Trance 29er X2 tires?

    Ok so I searched and could not find the answer. I want to put some more aggressive tires on my Trance. I have been thinking about putting a Hans Dampf on the front and leaving the NN on the rear. Does anybody know if a HD 2.35 will fit? I know they are big volume tires. Whats the biggest I can fit on the rear? Also been looking at the Ardents, the High Roller 2's, and the Continental Trail King. Any recommendations? Thanks everyone!

    I got to put my comment in on the WTB Bronson tire. I have it now on the front of my Anthem X 29er and really am liking it so far. I have had a chance to ride in a variety of conditions including some mud, and it has done really well. I am running it tubeless and on the rear I went with a WTB Wolverine and the combo has been great. I am coming off of running the Kenda Nevegal front and rear and I just didn't like the corner unpredictability of that tire, as well as the rolling weight. I have probably 20 rides on these WTBs and so far so good. I think the Bronson gets shadowed by the new Schwalbe tires like the Hans Dampf but I think it certainly holds its own.....literally and figuratively. Hope that gives you something to think about.
