    2.3 rear tire for XTC525

    Has anyone run a 2.3" tire on a XTC525? I would like to run them but it looks pretty tight with the 2.1s that are on there now.

    thanks in advance.

    I'm running Intense System 4 2.25 front and rear and they are at least as big as most 2.35's and it's fine.

    I did run one but replaced it with a 2.2. It wasn't because of fit; it just felt a little too big for my style.

    I ran a 2.35 Kenda H-Factor for a few rides, but switched to a 2.1 Nevegal - I had almost no mud clearance with the H-Factor...

    I am running my KHS 525 with 2 Maxxis Hookworms and I am very happy about it , no flats , great grip , the tires a supposed to be 2.5 but I think its wider , anyway they fitted my bike pretty well and there is space left , I cannot post pictures yet , but you can see it in my user album .
