    Which has the larger volume - 2.5 DHF, 2.4 Goma, or 2.4 Trail Boss

    Which of these 3 tires has the largest volume- 2.5 DHF, 2.4 Goma, or 2.4 Trail Boss?

    Currently running a NN 2.6 on my custom hardtail. I'm good on the 2.6 knob width, but I need a tire with more narrow casing width than the 2.6 NN.

    Magic Mary comes to mind. The 2.35 size is beefy at around 2.42 inches on i30 rims, 20 psi all you need. Casing should be a tad more narrow than the 2.6 NN you have now. Great tire for all conditions, especially wet mud or gravel - check it out!

    You want LESS volume than the 2.6, but of these three tires, you want the one with the MOST volume? The one with the least volume will likely have the narrowest casing, if that's what you're looking for....I'm a bit confused. Do you just want a tire that is wider at the knobs than at the casing?

    The Goma is a monster. It's a balloon.

    I'd say: Goma highest volume and then tie for DHF/Trail Boss
    I like 'em long, low, slack and playful

    Exactly what I was looking for thanks! I picked up a 2.5WT DHF to swap to, but may grab a Goma too later.

    Have a set of Gomas on my SS ROS9, friend rode up thought they were plus at first. Very comfy riding casing too. Only bigger I've had on it was WTB Dissent 2.5s, rough ride though but hookup for days.

    Uhhh, tire carcasses are circular in cross section so a wider tire will have more volume and vice versa. IMO, it's kinda silly to talk about volume.
    Do the math.

    Thought I made it pretty clear, wanting the tire with the biggest volume (widest casing/ Bead to bead) out of these three mentioned tires. I like the volume of the 2.6 NN, however it's rubbing ever so slightly.

    How's that, when the whole post is about the largest volume tire under the NN 2.6............

    It's not clear because the highest volume tire in that group may be wider than the Nobby Nic in question. Especially the Goma.

    But you're right, I think, to concentrate on bead to bead. Measure the NoNi B2B and then pick the tire in your group that has the greatest without exceeding the B2B of the NoNi.

    Highly doubt that, given that even on my 30mm internal width rim at 18psi, this NN casing is over 2.6" wide.

    My NoNi on a 35 id is 2.5915".... I would check the sizes before buying.

    Thanks for the numbers! My DHF 2.5 WT is 61.5mm (2.420") at casing and 64.5mm (2.540") at knobs on i30, after one full day of sitting tubeless at 30 psi.
