    2.5 Nevegals on Shift R5

    Would these fit on my stock wheel set ? Been running into alot of mud and Some loose silt .. I think these would be great but just wondering if they will clear the frame and if the wheel can accomodate ...

    Plus they are on sale AT jenson for 20 big ones ! Jill?

    Wow, 2.5 is a little wide but Kenda tires do run a bit on the narrow side. Fitting them on your stock wheelset shouldn't be a problem, but you might run into some frame buzzing issues if your wheel flexes or you pick up mud/stones/etc. I'm going to go out on a limb and say I think it's going to be too tight to be safe.

    Maybe someone else will post some real world results on this if they've tried it.

    Me thinks they will be too tight for comfort. What fork are you running? The clearance issue is there as well. Better bet would be to go with the 2.35's.....
