    What kind of XTC? XTC Composite? Advanced? Regular Alu. XTC?

    On my Advanced there's no way I could fit a 2.7. I run a Rocket Ron 2.25 and seems like a good fit. I think even a 2.4 would be tight.

    The XTC Composite had a little more clearance back there. So could probably fit a 2.4.

    Not sure on the Alu. XTC's


    Remember these are XC hardtails....

    Yeah...I gotcha.
    I really like the bike...have had it for about 2 years. Feels light, climbs awesome, just sometimes wish it was a little "tougher" on the rocky, technical, parts of the trails I ride.

    Was hoping some wider tires might provide a smidge more "toughness"....wishful thinking I guess. I think I might just try some 2.4s for the heck of it.

    Any suggestions? Id like about as aggressive tread pattern as I can get.
    Thnx

    Why not? I'd go for Continental Mountain King Protection 2.4 in front and maybe Xking in the rear.

    Widest tire for 13 Xtc 29er?

    I run a 2.25 geax goma in the back. 2.4 would not fit. I have previously run geax saguaro 2.25 and an x-king 2.2 in the back. I love the goma tire. I ride rocky desert trails in the Tucson area.

    I would highly recommend the Maxxis Ikons in 2.35 they are a great all round XC / trail tire. Heaps of volume, nice edge knobs and they roll real nice!!! That's if they fit, I have a XTC Composite 14 model and it handles the 2.25 Ikons no worries, i actually put the 2.35 on my Reign for some more XC style enduro trails i did and i've been impressed with them.

    Old thread but .. in the interest of keeping the information complete -
    I run Maxxis Ikon 29 x 2.35 (front and rear) on my 2014 XTC Composite 29 with no issues or rubbing.
