I have a brand new torker lx 20", and I have a 2.25 maxxis maxx daddy on it right now. It's a great tire w/ lots of tread that rolls quite fast. I think many 2.5 tires would fit the frame, however, this is the widest I've tried, and possibly the only tire I'll put on it as I mostly MUni. I really liked these tires for riding street on my bmx, but like the CC, it has paper thin sidewalls that can tear w/ lots of grinding, and fold on hard landings. I really liked the tall profile, because I could run the pressure low w/o hitting the rim. Hope this helps!
Also, when choosing a tire for one of my unis, my LBS let me try the tire I wanted on my rim to see if it would clear the frame (on the condition I would purchase it if I damaged it).

I think that 2.5 tires would fit as well. Also, if you're looking for another tire, the 20" and 24" torkers have the same forks so you could fit a 24" tire if you wanted (for muniing mainly)

Hmmm...on my 20" Torker LX, it has the Kenda 20x2.125" tire that came with it. There is about 1/4" of room on each side of the tire and on top of the tire, between the tire and the frame. So yeah, you might could put a bit bigger tire in there, but not a 24".

um... yeah.... completely different frame. that and it would also require a different WHEEL. StephenH is right, and the new 20" has a entirely different frame than the larger ones w/ a wider crown, and reinforced seat tube.

That's the widest knoby that will fit the 20" LX

A 2.6" Kenda kinetics will fit on the 24" LX. I don't know if any wider tires will fit though (not all tires that are labeled the same size, actually are. ie. a 2.6" Nokian Gazoladi is significantly larger than the Kenda and may be too tall or wide for the frame).

generally speaking, a 2.5" is the largest tire that'll fit on a Torker 24" LX?
