G'day chaps, so I've bought a used Fiend Reynolds and Fiend forks but I need to get myself some new tyres. I've had my eye on these Cult Vans tyres but I'm unsure what tyre size to go for, how can I tell what's needed? Preferably bigger is better for me.

Well, looks like you've answered your own question. Go for the bigger size if that's what you want.

I have a fiendReynolds v1 and I have plenty of clearance for the cult ak 2.6 tires SoIyou should be good with the vans tires as far as the frame goes. Not too sure about the forks though

Sorry I was implying what is the maximum tyre size I can use.

Well judging by what I see online fiend forks are made with extra clearance. I would go with 2.40 and call it a day.

2.4 is the sweet spot for me. I ride a little of everything including trails so I didn't want to go to fat but also wanted enough to be comfortable when riding street. 2.4 will give you a good amount of cushion as well.

How much fatter can you really go 3.0? Lol sorry, I just thought that last post was pretty funny. 2.4 is considered a mid size tire now? Holy shit. I guess my 2.15s are super skinny to you. Not trendy I know.

1.95 is the way to go , less rolling resistance pumped up to 110 and you'll go so much faster
