    27.5 x 2.6 Recons on a Marlin 6?

    Searched but coudnt find answer. I want to put a set of 27.5 x 2.6 Recons on my daughters 2020 Trek Marlin 6, the factory wtb tires suck.
    I know the front will work and that they widened the chainstays on 2020, just figured somone here might have tried it already. Thanks

    What's the inner width of the rims?

    They are Bontrager Connection 27.5x20 stock rims, which should handle 2.5 no problem but just wondering if 2.6s I have will work.

    You probably could run a 2.6 on a 20mm rim but I personally wouldn't. I think I'd want at least a 25mm internal width, preferably 30-35mm to take advantage of a 2.6 wide tire. I'm running a 2.4 on a 21mm I think while it's stable I think that's as wide as I'd want to go on a 21mm rim.
