    Rear tire clearance for Purgatory 2.2 tire on 2007 Epic

    Is anyone running a 2.2 Purgatory as a rear tire on an older 2007 Epic. How is the mud clearance?

    I do not race and use my Epic as a trail bike. Want a bit more grip in the wet than a 2.0 Captain tire would provide.

    Thanks in Advance!

    I don't know about the rear but i'm running a 2.2 Purgatory on the front and it grips great and seems to shed mud pretty well.

    I'm running a Purgatory 2.2 control at the front. I think it would fit in the rear but would be a tight fit. Its good that the Purgatory sheds mud well. This should help with the mud clearance. Basically wondering if a 2.2 wide tire would fit the rear end of a 2007 Epic with adequate mud clearance.
