    Plus tyres in Scout/Patrol?

    Who done it?

    What's the widest plus/non plus tyre you've fitted?

    In rear tri I mean. I know a 2.8 will fit in the Pike.

    I run 2.5 DHF 'wide trail' tires on my Patrol and they fit great.

    Bump. Also interested in finding out if a 2.8 plus will fit in the rear end of the Patrol.

    Any chance you have a pic of that setup? I'm thinking about it for my scout with some 29mm internal rims. Undecided if it'll be too much or not.

    With a Maxxis Minion DHR2 WT (2.4 width) there's clearance on the Patrol, but not a lot of extra room. My Aluminum 2015 Patrol has lost a fair bit of paint in that area. I'm using a 35mm (inside measure) rim with the DHR2 WT in the back. great tire. enough clearance.

    I'm not saying' the 2.8" tire won't fit (don't know), but I would expect mud and rocks to nick up the paint or other finish on the bridge if you're using something big.

    It's not a plus bike, but has plenty of clearance for big tires in the "Non-Plus" range.

    Not sure that helps, but it might.

    Was at Highland MTB Park this weekend and my buddy rented a Patrol there (which he loved) and out of curiosity I through my rear wheel onto it in the parking lot. I'm running a Maxxis Rekon on a Easton Heist 30 that measures out to 66-67mm (~2.6") at 21psi and while it technically fit it was really close on all sides especially on the seat stays. No room for mud or kicked up stones.

    To be clear, this was a 2.8 Rekon you stuck in there?

    Ok thanks. Scout c/s is 5mm shorter so there's a reasonable chance these 2.6's might fit.
