How wide of a tire can I run on the Mach 5.7 Carbon?
In the 26¡¨ wheels version, you can run most 26¡¨ X 2.3¡¨ tires on the market. With the 27.5¡¨ conversion, we use the Maxxis Ardent Race 2.2 in our complete bike builds. With the 27.5¡¨ conversion, vertical tire clearance is somewhat limited so although there may be some larger tires that fit, rim width and tire manufacture sizing call outs and tire inconsistency can result in huge difference among both tire brands and individual tires. On the 27.5¡¨ conversion bike, if you are running anything other than our recommended specification, we suggest you check the fit with your chosen rim and tire combination to make sure it has proper clearance before riding. Wider rims can allow the use of a slightly bigger tire diameter in some cases.
