Had a good days riding on Afan W2 trail yesterday. However the rocks had me wanting some tyres with a bit more air in them. Something like Maxxis high roller 2.35's. However, dont want to get £60 worth of tyres that don't fit.... I'm not too worried about mud clearance as it'll be for dry weather and trail centres, so anyone know if it'll fit?

    Novice here. I think it depends on what the max size the rim will take, and whether the tyre will have clearance from the frame/fork crown.

    I was asking purely about clrearance, as in, would it go around. However, good point. What's the maximum width the rim wil take.

    Google time....

    if it's a 2010 model then i presume it came with the bontrager xdx tyres on from new? if so then the 2.35 high rollers will definately fit as they come up quite small. not much differenve between them and the xdx's..

    No, it's the 2008 model. Currenly on the summer rubber (standard Jones tyres 2.2) but swap to knobby nics for the wetter rides.
    Just wanting that fat rubber for the rocky stuff.

    As mentioned above, the High Roller 2.35 isnt very big, its about the same size as my old Mountain King 2.2s.

    I used to have Nobby Nics 2.25 on my Trek 6500, and there was plenty of clearance.
