    Zeus Tire Width Help

    Can someone help me to figure out how wide I can go with tires in a Zeus frame. I am building my wheels with Spank ozzy 350 rims which have 30mm inner and 35 outer width. Ive just wonder if there will be enough space in the rear of the frame for a 2.35 2.40 tires. Many Thanks...any issues with the shock?

    Though not a Zeus, my Alpino with what I believe is the same yoke design, has ample space for wide tires. My go-to tire is a 2.3 Maxxis Agressor on 30 mm inner width rims. Tons of space left. I have also ran the 2.5 WT version with zero issues and ample space.

    Yes. I'm running Derby rims(35mm internal) and the DHR WT 2.4 rear tire and absolutely no problem.
    Also prior to that I used some e.13 2.35 tires which do measure much wider than 2.35! and had no issues.

    Hey! Thanks at the end I decided for 2.35 Eliminator. I think my Zeus can accept more lets say 2.6 at least. For the time being, this is going to be my setup
