I have been eyeing Schwalbe Jumbo Jims in the 4" variety for a while. none of my LBS' had any in stock and neither did amazon (for an ok price). I went to another LBS I have never been to and they had them in 4.8". a few installed on bikes I was looking at and a bunch for sale. I caved and bought 4.8" a member of the rad facebook group installed maxxis 4.8's on his bike so I was hoping I would have similar luck with the Jumbo jims fitting my bike.

They do!

Nice! I would've thought the chain would rub the tire on the lowest gear. There isn't much clearance for the chain, even with the stock 4" tires.

So I have about 5 singletrack trips on these tires now.. I am running them as 13 psi rear and 12 psi front and I have nothign but good things to say, they feel great, have so much air in them that it feels like im riding a FS bike.. also, I upgraded the rotors to Shimano RT66 SLX and am happy with them as well.
