    Need Conti Trail King 2.4" Performance(PureGrip) users

    I heard that the 2.4" TK Black Chili compound is a huge tire which measures for some people even 2.45-2.5", but I'd like to get the Performance version, which uses the PureGrip compound and is made in Asia.

    If you own this specific version of the tire(not BC please), could you please tell me the actual width of the tire ? The height would be also great, if it's a 27.5".

    If read of some rare reports(like this) of tk's being narrower than advertised, and want to make sure what size the PG's are. If they measure indeed 2.4" I might need to buy 2.2" because of fork rubbing.

    These are 2.4" TK's on my stock Bontrager wheels.


    I'll be swapping to i9 305 Enduro wheels soon.

    Love these tires!

    I highly recommend sticking with the Protection Apex sidewalls though.

    I have measured these. On i26 rims they were 2.29". Because the width wasn't as advertised I went with a WTB tire.

    The ones I have are the protection Apex sidewalls, and then Black Chili compound.

    They grip like theres no tomorrow.
