    Hal6 biggest tires?

    Anyone run a bigger than stock tire on their Hal6? I am thinking of trying a Wtb trailboss in 2.4 if it will clear.
    Thanks.

    I'd also like to know. On the fence between HAL 6 and HAL BOOST. Limiting tires below 2.35 would really sway me one way.

    I have Minion 2.3 on 28 inner diameter rims and there is still room.

    On the front there are certain pike forks that will take a 2.8". Or even a 3.0" at 27.5 but in the 29" wheel model.
    Seems like the back takes a max 2.4" according to previous posters. So what might the ride be like with a 2.8" upfront and a 2.4" in the back vs going with full 27.5+ models (boost). The geo is different on the boost models.
    Boost: None boost
    Chainstay 448.5 Wheelbse 1193 435 1167
    and I wonder what the difference in ride might feel like with the different Wheelbase and Chainstay specs.

    I've put a 27.5 x 2.8 on the front with no problem. Definitely won't fit in the back though.
