    Biggest tire on Sun Düroc 30 rims?

    I also posted this in the Rocky Mountain forum, let's see who answer is better, faster, and stronger:

    What's the largest 29" tire width I can run on Sun Duroc 30 rims? Looking for some more float on packed snowy trails in the Northeast. Bike is a Rocky Mountain Instinct C50 with boost hubs. Thanks in advance....

    I’m running Maxxis Forekaster 29x2.6” without issues.

    This won't really help you here but a couple of years ago, a kid at the bike shop put a 3.8 Knard on a Stan's Flow and rode it in a Surly 1x1. It looked retarted but it did work.

    I would say anything that will fit in the frame should do ok on that rim. I ran 3" tires on 35mm rims on my Krampus until I was able to build 40mm wheels for it.
    I like turtles
