    Suspension or Wheel UPGRADE

    I know this question is dependent on what stock components come on a bike. I previously planned on upgrading my bike as a whole, but as I plan on using my Lapierre zesty as a race rig instead as my everyday trail bike I am willing to start putting some of my funds towards it. I have already upgraded the whole drivetrain, bars, stem, brakes ect. The stock wheels are Mavic 319's with 23mm of internal width. These wheels have been bomb proof in New England Terrain, but with 2.4 inch tires a better sidewall profile is desired. The fork is a Fox 32 CTD with 150mm of travel. Both components are admittedly undergunned for the kind of riding I do, but which component should be prioritized is my question. Thank you for your responses!

    Yeah. The fork's got to go.

    Maxxis 2.3 DHF/DHRII are excellent trail/AM tires and will work just fine on your rims.
