    WTB Vigilante 2.5 - real world width??

    Looking for a good wet weather front tire to pair with a rear - HRII 2.5 or XR5 2.6.

    Seen numbers saying 2.5 Vig is 60mm wide...

    Sounds like the 2.6 Vig is massive!! Too heavy for my liking though.

    Can't find any real world data on 2.5 Vig width.

    Info appreciated... pics even better.

    Wish I could help you.

    I've got a 29x2.6in light/high grip Vigilante, and it is huge. It measures a touch over 2.7".

    I swear I read a review somewhere that measured the 2.5" version... but I just looked at like 5 of them, and I can't find any. Curious what you find though.

    It measures up true to size, 65mm at the tip of the outer lugs

    Thing offers grip in spades

    Particularly on off camber roots... you can hear it clawing and grabbing at them

    I've chucked it up front, on my 170/160mm travel 29er.

    I was planning to put it on my HT for the winter slop

    But, I might just keep it were it is
