    Managed to squeeze on some kenda 2.35s for a snowdon trip – stayed on ok… am I likely to die long term ? Guess I am pushing it twith these tyres… did work superbly though !

    any opinions welcome
    cheers

    I used to run 2.35 High Rollers without problem, tubeless too down to around 25psi

    I’ve used 2.25 Advantage without a problem, and they’re a huge tyre.

    2.4″ Advantage was too far (they’re whoppers though)

    The Mavic website says 2.1, but the sticker on teh side of mine said 2.3- bit odd.

    Then o’course there’s tyre size randomness. 2.35 Kenda is usually pretty close to 2.35. 2.35 Highrollers, closer to 2.1 than 2.35. I ran 2.35 Bluegrooves and Nevegals on mine and never had any problems.

    As for Advantages being huge- 2.4 Advantage is slightly under the claimed size. Though they’re fairly tall. They only look big because we’re used to being fibbed to.

    Thanks guys – Northwind – thats the same combo I use – come back to a blue groove / nev combi after a few years and I actually like them a lot….

    cheers

    Yeah I reckon the 2.1 Kendas are about right – they’re big for they’re stated size.

    The Blue Groove / Nevegal was my first working combo.

    Seen 2.5 dual ply minions on them for a week in the alps.

    2.3(?) Swampthing here, no problems.

    2.5 minions are good

    I’ve run 2.3 on them before but the tyres roll when cornering hard. Generally stuck to a 2.1

    depends on pressure really.
