    Rear tire size 2011 Enduro

    Has anyone put a Maxxis highroller 2.5 on the back of their enduro?

    Im planning on a minion 2.5 in the front and the highroller 2 on the back.

    I'm pretty sure this will make for a great tire combo, I know that the maxxis tires run a bit narrow, for example, I have a minion 2.35 one of my bikes and it is narrower than the purgatory 2.2 that came on the bike.

    Im not sure if I am gonna rub or not.

    thanks,

    Jeff

    Plenty of room for 2.5 Maxxis tires. I ran that combo for a while on my 2010 enduro. Personally, I prefer the DHF on both the front and rear (I find the DHF grips a bit better on the climbs), but the Minion front high roller on the rear is a good combo.

    It's the original High Roller.

    The highroller 2 uses the same casing as the old highroller so, they're the same volume. Maxxis is just being more accurate with the claimed sizes now.

    The high roller 2 side knobs are different however, so the tire is 1mm wider at the top of the side knobs, so it'll be fine on the enduro.

    I have a 2.2 Purgatory on one of my bikes and it's actually a bigger volume tire than 2.5/2.4 Maxxis tires, however, the Maxxis tires are slightly wider at the edge of the side knobs.
