    I have Schwalbe Rocket Ron 27.5 x 2.6 on my kid's 2017 Anthem Advanced 1. Assuming that the 2019 geometry is the same as 2017 you can fit 2.6", you have about .25" clearance around the rear triangle. Do not use Maxxis tires cause they are a little bit taller while Schwalbe tires are a little wider.

    Did you mount the 2.6s on the standard rims from the 2017 Anthem Advanced 1? I'd like to try 2.6 on my Anthem advanced 1 but was a little worried rims are too narrow.

    I originally tried 27.5x2.6 Nobby Nics on a 23mm id rim before I got wider rims. While I do prefer them on the wider rims (29 on my wife's bike and 35 on mine) they worked very well on the narrower rims as well. They weren't quite as wide, and they required slightly more pressure, but they were an improvement over 2.4, even on narrower rims.
