Does anyone run these in 2.35? On a 29er?
I run ~2.35 on my all mountain bike (26er) but haven't used these.
Thinking about tubeless but the 29er but not sure if that much width is prudent or even useful on a 29er.
Thoughts? Thanks.

I run a 2.35 on my 29in bike that is tubeless and it works good for me but its totally up to you.

I ran a 2.35 on my niner and the rear kept rubbing on the frame whenever I stand up to climb. I would check your frame if you have enough space to accommodate the bigger tire before buying it. Although the bigger volume tire felt better on my hard tail than the lower volume 2.25. Grip is excellent but I noticed a slight disadvantage trying to turn quick on the 2.35.

I run the 2.35 on the front most of the year. I usually run a less knobby tire on back (Racing Ralf mostly). But in the fall, when the leaves and pine needles start to cover the trail and things get a bit more slippy, I mount the Nobby Nick 2.25 on the back. Terrific tires.
