    Maxxis DHF 2.5 on I9 Trail 245 Rims?

    Anyone running this combo? Think I can get away with it? I called I9 and they say yes.

    This article says no: Can you run Maxxis Wide Trail tires on regular rims? - Mtbr.com

    This article suggests otherwise: Review: Industry Nine Trail 245 - Carbon Alternative

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    I run nobby nic 2.6 on my I9 24.5 wheelset. No problems. I also run Ranger 29x3.0 on WTB i29 rims...no problems. It's not as big of a deal as they want you to believe. They just want you to upgrade!

    Can you get away with running this combo? Sure as hell you can. Will you get the best performance out of the tyre with this combo? I personally don't think so, but it shouldn't be too far off, definitely not un-rideable, but going from my experience with it predecessor, the original 2.5" DHF trying it on an i29 rim, I wouldn't want it on anything skinnier myself.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    Thanks, I got this ordered and threw it on the other night. The profile isn't too rounded. Living the the central rockies it will be a little while before I can test it out.
