Thinking of switching from 27.5+ to 29. What is the widest 29 tire that would work?

I have a 2019 Big Honzo ST and I have ran 2.6 Maxxis tires and 2.4 Continental Der Baron's front and rear on 30mm wide wheels. What you can get away with is really going to depend on what brand of tires you are planning to use and how wide your wheels are. A 2.6 Maxxis is nearly the same size as my 2.4 Continental Der Baron tires. I currently have a Maxxis Ikon 2.6 on the rear and there is about half an inch of clearance from the chainstay. You could probably get away with some 2.8 tires in the rear but I doubt many 3 inch tires will fit. Personally I like 2.4-2.6 for my riding in the PNW.
