    3.0 gazz

    I have 3.0 gazz on Marge(65mm) in my 1x1, but the rim won't clear the brake studs, requiring a disc brake. But any other narrower rim/3.0 gazz will work fine.

    ...And you would probably need to use cantilever brakes rather than V-brakes. The V-brake cable may not clear the top of the tire.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Nevegal 2.5s

    I ran Kenda Nevegal 2.5s last fall and winter. I had plenty of clearance on the sides but the slightest buildup on the tire would rub my Vbrake noodle a little bit, but not enough to cause damage.
