i ran 2.8 minions on the stock rims, fit with plenty of clearance. lots of grip, but lots of rolling resistance too. i settled for a 2.6 dhf in front for great cornering and 2.5 agressor in the rear for faster rolling. very good combo.

i will say maxxis 2.6 is a bit smaller then bontrager 2.6, and maxxis 2.8 is only a bit bigger then bontrager 2.6. the knobs are bigger on either size maxxis though.

Thanks for your reply. So the 2.8 cleared the fork with no problem?

yes with the stock rims. i dont know what will happen if you use line 40s though.
Thanks mate. Went to the LBS today and disscussed tire options. Looks like a 2.8 DHF/2.6 DHR2 will be the combo. Its a bummer the DHF doesnt come in maxx grip or the Assegai doesnt come in 2.8 but oh well
