Hi all, sorry if this topic is already on here somewhere. I have a 2011 Giant Talon 0 with 26x2.10 tires. I want to know if it would be possible to upgrade the tires to either 2.25 or 2.30? Would they be enough clearance? Thanks

In my research online I couldn't find anywhere if those size tires would fit. I would imagine you could fit at least a 2.25 though. Most bikes are manufactured to fit at least that. I would say you could probably fit the 2.3 as well but if you want to play it safe 2.25 should be fine. What kind of tires were you thinking? I had Maxxis Ardent 2.25s on my XC bike and really liked them.

Hi Ian, thanks for you’re reply. Two of my friends have the “WTB” branded tyres both in 2.25 & 2.30. So have been looking and seem a good price. Only £16.99 & £19.99. I currently have Maxxis on now (which came as standard when I bought the bike) but I don’t do a lot of miles. Just wanted an upgrade to help me out in the mud and wetter rides out.
