    Largest tire that can fit a Spider XVP?

    I've demo'd the Tracer 2 and Tracer 229 and loved the fatter 2.2 tires each had. Now when back on my Spider XVP (original) my 2.0 tires feel skinny. Fast, but for just plain trail riding fun, I'm thinking of going with fatter tires as a way to up the fun a bit until I can pool the funds for a new Tracer 229 or Spider 229.

    What is the largest tire that will fit a Spider XVP without hitting the frame? Any experience would be greatly appreciated!

    I run panaracer 2.25 cinders which work great (not a popular tire in usa, more popular in europe, hold up in the rocks better than nevegals), gotta keep wheel true and occasional problem in mud, i have seen others run wider but they are damaging the frame) .... an o yes a new spider 229 would be so great
