    Santa Cruz Bronson - Largest Tire?

    Hey folks,

    Its clear that my search skills are lacking because I just can't seem to find information on this subject that just answers the question.

    So for anyone who knows, what is the largest tire that can be fit to a gen 1 Bronson?

    Any chance of running tires larger than 2.4?

    Thanks!

    I have the same question. I am thinking about upgrading the rim to a 50mm derby and putting some 3" tires on but just not sure if they will fit. I currently run the Conti MT King 2.4 and there is some room left. I will keep an eye on this post to see if anyone has a more solid answer.
    Narrow and rugged is the path that leads to life and few find it.

    I just got a set of WTB Breakout 2.5's for my Bantam, and will check fitment on my Bronson once I have them mounted up.

    Did you ever try them on your Bronson?

    Yes I did, and found it to be too close for comfort. Never took any pictures because it was so tight down by the lower link attachment. The slightest amount of mud or a rock stuck in treads would have made for some unhappy carbon fiber.

    Is this a V1 or V2 Bronson? I am running a Minion 2.5 on the front with a Fox 36 and it's clearing just fine.

    V1, and my comments were regarding the rear tire. The WTB Breakout measures larger than 2.6" wide even on an i23 rim.

    I'm running 2.4 Conti Trail Kings on some 35mm rims and there's very little room
