    New question here. Maximum tire size on a VT frame

    Going to purchase new tires soon and I'm looking for wider tires, I'm currently running Kenda KlimaxLite 1.9's and would like to run something on the 2.x area.

    Any suggestions on all around trail riding tires and size?

    I love trailbears on my VT

    Nice and light, good tread, good wear. 2.35 .They seem to "fit" the VT well. I have run a wtb 2.4 moto on the rear with no problems. Good luck!

    Just put in a set of Scorpions, 2.3f/2.0r. So far no complaints but helps to know that it can take a wider tire.

    Who makes the trailbears?

    I was running the Michelin Hot S 2.2" tires, and they rocked. Big and meaty enough, but still fairly light. I think they're the perfect VT tire.
