What would be the minimum tire size you would run, 2.3? How does a Dh rim this size ride overall? Any info on wide rims would be appreciated!
A wider rim gives the tyre a squarer profile. It makes it a bit slower pedalling but gives better traction for less lean in corners. I've run 2.1's on the mavic 321d (now called 729) and really liked the result.

You'll also be running lower pressure with less problems of rim hits.
