I run WTB assym i35 with nobby nic 2.8 or DHR II 2.8 in the rear. Its tight but it fits. You'll be fine
Whoa...you can fit a 2.8 in the back of a Spitfire? I read somewhere that it measures out to a 2.6. I'm running a 2.35 Nobby Nic on some i29 rims on the rear now. Looks like there is a good amount of room.

Anyone could share pictures of the rear wheel tire between the frame. How close is the tire against the frame?

On the DHR II the carcass is 66mm / 2.6" and the side knobs are 69 mm/ 2.7". But it's very new. Out of the box it was only 63 mm wide so I'm not sure if it'll stretch a bit more. I've done about 1300 km since january when I built up the bike, I got some very light rubbing marks in the anodisation on the left chainstay, probably from the Nobby Nic I used to run being a bit wobbly. Like I said, its itght but it works. A 2.6 would probably be better though.
