    Brood Maxtion 20x2.2" actual width?

    I took the plunge on some 20x2.2" Maxtions for my son's bike. My rims are 27mm internal width. The tires are measuring 2.1" wide at the widest point (knobs).

    Spawn support (which was generally very good) blamed my rims, but I don't buy it. Rims are aliennation skylarks. Seems like these tires run a tad narrow, similar to dhfs.

    Anybody actually getting 2.2" width out of these tires? For the price I was hoping to get the advertised volume. Tire weight was below advertised, and tubeless setup was easy. Dropped almost a pound off the bike.

    I bought a set last year. They initially measured 1.9” at the widest (outside knobs) and eventually stretched to 2.05”. Better, but still not the claimed 2.2”.

    Thanks ghabe! Glad to know it's not just me. I wonder who manufactures these tires. Seems like the typical volume BS that many tire makers are up to these days. Don't get me wrong, we've been out for a couple of rides and these tires do seem to handle quite well.

    Sounds like they were manuf by Maxxis .

    Try inflating them to 55 PSI and letting them sit for a day or two. You might get that extra .1. I wouldn't worry to much about it to be honest simply because there's hardly any decent options with a halfway decent tread pattern and weight. These are about it, cheers to Spawn for supporting the kids scene so well. They are awesome for everything aside from sending it in the park. Rocks will slice them up (the bottoms) pretty good on a decent DH run. Other than that they've been worth every cent. They are kind of like a Maxxis HR2 and shed mud decently.

    That’s what I did to get them where they are now. They won’t get any wider at this point. Like you said, they’re great tires and I’m not really concerned with the actual width as long as they perform well.
