I am looking to get a new rear wheel with a wider rim that will be a better fit for my 2.5" rear tire. My current Easton XCII's are too narrow at 23mm outer and 17mm inner rim width.
I am looking at either an Easton Vice/XR with a 26mm outer and 21mm inner width or an Easton EA70 XL with a 26mm outer and a 20mm inner.
I like the EA70 XL better since it has straight pull spokes, but everything I have read about running 2.5" tires says you need at least a 21mm inner rim width.
Is the 1mm from 20mm to 21mm going to matter that much when running 2.5" tires?
