    Tire set ups 08 FSR 29er

    I am looking into new tires for my 29er and have seen on the reviews that there is concern over clearance for the 08 FSR 29er's.....I will assume for the back tire. (the REBA seems to have a ton of space for fatter tires.) The bike came with 2.0 The Captain tires.
    What set ups are you using? I'm leaning towards Kendas but want to know how wide I can go.
    thanks

    I have the 2.2 S-Works Captains mounted on my '09 with no problems. I don't think the 2.35 Nev's would clear though.

    I recently swapped both the front and rear to Maxxis Ardents. 2.25". Great tires. No clearance problems.

    I settled on the Nevgal 2.2 for the front and the Maxis Igniter 2.1 for the rear.
    I also bought a Kenda SM8 for the back when things dry out....I'll let u know how it goes!
    I am going to keep the Captains for long distance events.....
