    VT 2 Widest Tire

    What is the widest tire that will fit?

    I'm running a 2.3 in the back and there is still gobs of room. I'm guessing you could go as large as 2.5, easily

    2.5" is possible. Mud clearance will be non-existant though.

    Panaracer Cinders 2.25 have plenty of clearance.
    I bike; therefore, I work

    I had WTB MotoRaptors 2.4 on the rear, and it fit well, but the clearance between the vertical plate on the chainstays and the tire is narrow. Things can get wedged in there really fast....
    Just keep going....

    2.45 inch Hutchinson Jumbo rubbed the frame on bends. About 2 mm to spare...

    2.5 inch Michelin Hot didn't rub...

    old VT

    I used to ride a VT 1 last year and, at some point, I had 2.6 Gazza Jrs on it. Those tires weigh a ton, but they kick a$$!

    Never had any clearance problems.
    Here's my old VT - with the Gazzas on.

    No problems fitting:
    - Mutanoraptor 2.4
    - Tioga DH 2.1 (pictured on my VT on RhynoLites)

    I'm an Inbred...29er that is.
