Can I put a Duro Crux 3.25 on it? Or would that only work for more recent frames (without the Magura tabs)?
    In reply to your PM:

    Not quite sure what measurement you need, but here are some photos against a tape.

    From top outer edge of rim:

    My KH29 was bought in Oct 2018 and I think it's the current shape. Disc mounts only.

    Let me know if you need other photos or exactly where to measure.

    Sorry for the delay in replying. I just saw your post today

    Thanks for your answer! That was a bit of a delay.
    Funny thing is, I just checked in to ask trepper 687 the same question.
    Maybe he would like to share his experience concerning the autosteer of the Dirt Wizard?

    Cheers
    Stephan

    Thanks in advance!

    For me muni tyres comes down to two factors: Sideways stability and fun. These two factors are mutually exclusive, you can't have both, but you can compromise. This year I've put handlebars on my munis and it helps a great deal with controlling the beasts.

    I've grouped the muni tyres I have some experience with:

    Sideways stability:
    24/26 x 3 Duro Leopard Wildlife
    27.5 x 3 Surly Dirt Wizard

    Compromize:
    27.5 x 3.25 Duro Crux

    Fun:
    26 x 3 Surly Knard
    26 x 3.8 Surly Nate

    Can't ride it:
    Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 26 x 4.8 (I was all over the place)

    My latest purchase is the 27.5 x 3 Surly Dirt Wizard. I really like it. I can keep my balance pretty good (sideways stability), it's very presice, and it's lighter than the Wildlife. Because of this I get pretty confident. I guess it can be fun sometimes to be in control, but it's not the roller coaster kind of fun that you get with other tyres. The drops feels a bit hard though, and I really have to pay attention to the terrain in front of me or else I'll get thrown off by small roots or bumps (bigger roots and bumps are no problem). And yes, it lives up to it's name. Great on dirt and mud.

    If I have a very good day, the Surly Knard is the best. Light, playfull and bouncy. But when I have an off day I struggle with it, especially when it comes to sideways balance. The Nate is in the same category, but it rolls over more stuff and is heavier an more bouncy.

    In the middle you have the Duro Crux wich is really great.

    The weight of the tyre gives you an indication on were to place it on the sideways stability/fun scale I think.

    I just got a 26x3 surly dirt wizard. I really like it. Has good bounce, tons of grip and,seems to be built pretty damn solid. I was able to roll over obstacles pretty well and the grip was really good . all the snow is still melting on the mountains so theres a lot of mud and this tire gripped really well.


    Would recommend for sure. I like it better than tge 26x3 duro wildlife that came on it.
    Interesting how both tires coincidentally could be described the acronym DW

    Makes sense, the wider the rim, the more "spread" is the tire.

    I think you are spot on! I had the Maxxis on a 32mm rim. Lol

    I've been looking at the dirt wizard. Do you like it. How does it hug rocks and boulders?

    The 29x2.6 on a 47mm rim has noticeable autosteer, what could be a possible explanation
