I would like to build up a new set of wheels and wondering what the best/max rim and tire size combo would safely fit.

Any help would be much appreciated. Currently running stick wheel set with Maxxis 27.5x2.3 tires in dry and dusty SoCal.

I would love to go to a 30 internal width rim with maybe a 2.5 tire, but not sure how much wider that combo will be than the current setup.

Thanks.

Or should I just go 30 inside width and stick with the same 2.3 tires I’ve been running...

A 2.5" tire would be the largest to fit on your frame. If you plan on riding rougher terrain or need the added traction from more tire contact, I would suggest the 2.5 with 30mm wheels. Otherwise the 2.3 or even a 2.4 would do well.
