So I've recently been thinking about mulleting my sb165 for more compliance and rollover but when I had a 2.8 plus on the front I was plenty happy with it...just the squirm on my narrow rims was a bit more than I wanted. I really don't know why 27.5 plus on wide rims is not preffered over 29 on narrow rims...you get similar rollover with more traction and massively more comfort. It really bothers me they may get rid of plus tyres and eventually 27.5. I'm thinking of replacing my 27.5 wheels to wider rims but worried it will be a pointless investment if they stop producing plus tyres soon. I feel pushed by the industry to go 29 for longevity sake even though in reality I think I would prefer 27.5 plus.
