    High volume rear tyre recomendations?

    I'm searching high volume rear tyre for my Mondraker Dune. Front tyre is Nobby Nic 27.5x2.8 but plus size tyre wont fit my frame.
    Contin Trail king 2.4 is huge but its heavy (950g). Mountain King 2.4 is the first choice at the moment (measured width 63mm at 29mm id rim and weight is around 800g)

    Any other really big volume tires?

    I like Maxxis tires quite a bit. The Highroller II might be worth checking out depending on your riding style. High Roller II | Maxxis Tires USA

    What type of riding do you?

    Bontrager XR4 Team 2.35 has a well rounded profile good on a 30mm id rim.

    Morsa 2.3 is huge for a 2.3. Loves wide rims too. Fast. Grippy. Stout sidewalls. Did I mention fast? Almost 900 grams, but only super models and racers care about weight.
    My name is Chris and I ride a Prophet 650b with a Lefty.

    For big volume AND pedals well the WTB Breakout 2.5 is a good choice as long as you're not riding sticky thick mud.

    Beyond just volume, what tire characteristics are you looking for and what types of trails do you ride? The Trail King is a high volume tire for sure, but I don't love either the rolling resistance or the cornering of the Trail King, at least in the 2.2 size as I've not ridden the 2.4 size.

    I am running the WTB Breakout 2.5 with a NN 2.8. Good combo. Get the tough sidewalls, and not worry about cuts. The weight is a bit high, but it rolls well.
