WTB MotoRaptor 2.4 55/60 on Trek Fuel EX 6
I'm wondering if the WTB MotoRaptor 2.4 55/60 would fit on my 06 Fuel EX 6. I'm looking for something wider and more grippy to replace my stock Bontrager Jones ACX's for riding Southern Califrinia trails. Are the Motor Raptors to big to fit or will they work with my Rock Shox Tora Fork? Ive seen thise get great reviews and I am a 6'3 205lbs. so I'm not really worried about the extra weight Any input or other sugestions for a wider grippy tire appreciated. Thanks
It will fit the Tora no questions asked, but I haven't seen how the rear of a Fuel is wide like, so I will not comment on that.

On my opinion a very good tire MotoRaptor the WTB 2.40 (55/60). It has excellent grip going down dirt roads and asphalt, at any weather. In tight turns has excellent stability. And, in local races other brands (Specialized, Continental, among others) have suffered punctures leaving competitors out. I´ve a GF Wahoo with the MR for 5 months ago.
