    Biggest tires I can put on 2017 giant anthem 3

    I have a 2017 giant anthem 3 and was wondering what are the widest tires anyone has successfully put on this bike, there seems to be a fair amount of clearance on either side of the current 2.25 tires.

    what are the current tires? is that a rocket ron 29x2.25 by chance?

    check not only the side clearance, but also the top of the tire, particularly if you ever ride in muddy conditions.

    Current size is 27.5 x 2.25. I don't do much riding in muddy conditions.

    Fitted Schwalbe Rocket Ron 2.6Ē to my 2017 anthem advanced, measure width is about 2.65Ē at 25psi. Still have good chainstay-seatstay clearance. Diameter wise, leaves about 4mm on both stays. The tires are mounted to 34mm internal width carbon rims.

    Do you have any problems with mud building up or rubbing?
    If you have any pics I'd love to see them
