    Maxxis DHF 2.3 vs 2.5 knob height?

    Anyone know how the knob height compares between the DHF in 2.3 vs 2.5 sizes? Or that can measure the height of the center & side knobs on a 2.3?

    I'm thinking about doing up a set with Grip Studs, and on the 2.5 I tried a couple out on, the knob seems to be just tall enough to not puncture the casing. 2.3 would be a better fit for me in terms of frame clearance and matching rim width though, so long as the knobs are deep enough to hold the screw in studs. TIA

    Figured I'd go straight to the source and called Maxxis, they were very helpful. Center knobs are 5mm on the 2.5" and 4.4 on the 2.3", shoulder knobs are 10mm and 6.6 respectively.

    Bryan at Grip Studs said a knob that is at least 5mm deep, with a surface area of 10x10 is recommended, so guess I'll be double checking the clearance with a 2.5

    Surprised there's such a difference in center to side knob ratio between the two sizes.
