    Ripley LS v2 boost owners tire choices on WIDE rims

    Hi guys,
    I've searched for this and found mostly very dated info on what tires people are using on the v2 boost with skinny rims and tires.

    I want to know what tires people are successfully using on the back with 30 or 35mm (inner) rims. I ride what I would call aggressive XC, so looking for the biggest and best traction options (lots of wet rocks, roots.) Thanks!
    PS - please don't suggest a V3/v4 at this point!

    Used to have V2, loved that bike. I found that running a Maxxis Rekon's, Nobby Nics' and Hans Dampf's amongst the tires that performed well for me.

    Thanks for the input! I assume these were all in the 2.35-2.4 range? Do you happen to recall if Rekon 2.4wt fit? I like that tire as a rear, just don't know if it will fit
