rushman - I usually run 2.6 Rekons on i30 rims for our trails here in SoCal. For the nastier (and funner) stuff in the Moab/Canyonlands area we wanted more cush and traction. We mounted 2.8 Rekons on i40 or i45 rims in front (as shown above) and 2.6 Rekons on i36 or i40 rims in back.

Here’s mrs levity’s EE rear wheel with a 2.6 Rekon on an i40 rim. There’s 4mm clearance to the seatstays, 5mm to the seatstay bridge, and a bit more down in the chainstay/yoke area. Plenty of clearance for slickrock and sand.
