Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
I meant to add, rim width is therefore related to desired tire size. i25mm rim for 2.3" tire or less. i30mm rim for 2.3"-2.5" tires. i35mm rim for 2.5" - 2.8" tires. Maxxis WT 2.4/2.5" tires are designed for i30-i35mm rims. Their older tires always measured narrower, but the new Maxxis tire sizes are true to size.

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
I'm running the Maxxis 2.4 DHRII WT tires on all my bikes. On 30mm internal width rims, I can feel squirming and burps on aggressive corners. On the 35mm internal rims, I have experienced no squirming and burping. I run 20f/25r psi. I never did any scientific comparisons, but my general impression is that the 35mm internal width rims provide more tire support. Plus, they look bad ass. I plan on trying out a set of 2.6 Forekasters as my next tire. I think a 35mm internal width rim would be ideal for a 2.6 tire. Seems like tire size preference is related to the trails we frequently ride. My friends in Minnesota don't run anything larger than 2.3 tires while my friends in Boulder City don't run anything smaller than a 2.5 tire. Most people at Bootleg are running 2.6 and larger.

I also carry the Topeak Ratchet tool kit. It's a really nice product, light and a pleasure to use.

@philrossnz: I suppose you're right. At least I got a down vote out my comment.

Note to other fork companies: If you paint your fork green, we're going to think DVO. Pick a different color you hosers.
