its on 2.2 tires now with not so wide rims, and the rear clearence from the frame is about less then 10mm each on both sides :? prety close. my guess 2.3 on narrow rims and 2.25 on slighly wider rims like DT 5.1 or something. But it doesnt make any sense to use that rim. haha

CHecked.. its 165mm by 37mm... :) sorry!
