    2008 azure rear wheel clearance.

    Did the rear wheel clearance change on the 2008 models versus previous models? Would a crossmark 2.1 fit without rubbing?

    Is the weirwolf 2.1 a true 2.1 tire?

    In reply to OP - i usually run a 2.1 crossmark. clearance is tight at the front but fine for the type of trails you would use a crossmark on. When it gets wet a crossmark doesn't pick up much mud so it still fits fine, just not the tyre for those conditions. Look 2.0 or smaller for wet riding.
