Has anyone tried to squeeze a 27.5 x 2.8 tire on a the back of a 456 Carbon? I have a 2.4 Mountain King on there now and there looks like a lot of room to spare. Would love to know if anyone has tried it.
For anyone that is interested, Rocket Ron 27.5x2.6, on a 38mm wide rim fit. 27.5x2.8 doesn't.
So my setup is Rocket Ron 2.8 on the front, and 2.6 in the back. Just took it out for the first ride, and it's great. More comfortable ride, and the extra rubber is great for traction and not as jarring. I recommend it to anyone who is considering it.
