    The widest 27.5+ tires (up to 3.5") - actual widths please

    I'm looking for the widest 27.5+ tire that I can fit in my new frame on-order. I think it will fit up to 27.5x3.5" actual width, and I have 50mm Mulefut rims.

    The Vee Trax Fatty 27.5x3.25" might come in around a true 3.25" based on this review from twentynineinches. They measured these tires at 79mm wide on 35mm internal width rims, so 45mm internal width Mulefut 50s might push actual width to 82mm.

    The Panaracer Fat B Nimble 27.5x3.5" is actually more like 2.8" wide even on properly-wide 50mm rims.

    The Vee Crown Gem 27.5x3.8" measures about 3.69" on 70mm rims, so probably about 3.6" on 50mm rims, but that's too wide.

    Are there any other tires I may have not noticed that would measure in at less than 27.5x3.5"?

    Bontrager Hodag is probably real close to 3.5" on your MuleFut's.

    I don't have any mounted right now -- sorry.

    FBF and FBR will be very close as well.

    I do have 2 of these currently mounted on 50mm Mulefuts, right at 3.575" at the widest knobs, casing is a tad over 3.5" (tubeless at 11 psi).

    You will also want to look at the Duro Crux 3.25, although you have to order them from across the pond -
