    Hello all,

    So i have a DiamondBack Mason trail, it has Blanchard 38 wheels/ChoaYang 27.5×3.0 tires I want to change tires to Maxxis rekons 27.5 x2.8  will the smaller size cause me probs on my rims?

    Just my opinion but I don’t see dropping to 2.8 being a problem on that size rim.  Plus tire sizes differ by model and manufacturer, the rekons could be the same size or close to the 3.0’s your replacing.

    Shouldn’t be an issue.

    The Rekon is one of my favorite tires.

    I think you will like it!

    I run them on my 27.5+ wheels with the 2.8’s and on my 29er set up with the 2.4’s.
