    Norco Fluid Tire Question

    I have the Norco Fluid 7.1+ and am looking to upgrade tires. Frankly, the stock WTB Rangers just aren't doing it for me. My question is what is the widest and skinniest size tires I could run? I am also running the stock Alex MD 35 650B+ 32H, 35mm TRS rims if that helps.

    What about the Rangers isn't "doing it" for you?

    35mm would be a good fit for 2.6 tyres like a Nobby Nic or Rocket Ron. Going even narrower, you could easily run Maxxis DHF 2.5 WT and DHR2 2.4 WT on those for an aggressive option. Going wider, personally I'd stick to 2.8 however some manufacturers have released plus bikes running 3.0 tyres on 35mm rims.

    The Rangers just don't seem grippy enough for the way I ride. Maybe it's me but I want something a bit more sticky if that makes sense. I'll take a peak at your
