    Swagman XCT...seriously limited to 2.5 tires or no?

    Need a rack. The XCT2 trays are only 2.5'' wide (XC trays are 3.5''). I have 2.5WT Maxxis DHR/Aggressor tires. These tires may or may not measure a true 2.5'' on a 30mm rim, idk. Would hate to order the XCT and find out the tires don't fit.

    Is anyone using 2.5 or greater size tires on the XCT with success (or not)?

    thks

    I have a XTC-4 and can measure the hoop width for you in a few hours and see if they are actually 2.5 or bigger. I don't have any 2.5 tires but there seems to be enough space in there for one.

    Our bikes have:
    - Ground Control Sport 27.5 x 2.3 on 25mm
    - Kenda Honey Badger 27.5 x 2.2 on 28mm
    - Schwalbe Smart Sam 29 x 2.25 on 19mm

    Thks but after some research I think I will spend more on a more flexible model with trays. I'm thinking the Kuat Transfer. Thks though.

    Cool. If you found a smoking deal on a XTC the fat tire adapters are $36 a set on etrailer. I got my XTC-4 for $160 used with only a few uses in it.
