    Thunderbolt - Maxxis 2.5 WT tires

    Has anyone had the chance to mount up some Maxxis 2.5 WT tires to their Thunderbolt? I know Maxxis runs small, so I'm hoping they will fit no problem.

    Mailed Rocky and they said 2,4" max. Depending on the pattern.
    I have a 2017 730MSL, and some i35 wheels from Actionsports/Funworks.
    I've only tried the Forekaster 2,6" in the rear. And it fits. It's a bit tight, snow, mud and bits of forest get stuck on the chainstays and rubs on the tire wall a bit. Dry weather should be no problem.
    Put a small peice of helitape or clear tublesstape on the inside of the chainstay to protect it.

    Tires with more aggressive thread patterns like DHR II might be to tight, but there's a 2,4 WT version that could work.

    I have a DHF 2,6" in the front, lots of room left. Could possibly run a 2,8 or more.

    Awesome. Thanks for the great info. Sounds like I'd be just fine in the front. The back sounds like it will be close. I forgot that they don't even make a 2.5WT DHR, so 2.4 sounds like the way to go. Thanks again!
