pretty sure 2.2 would be as big as you could go before it starts to rub.

So i took the bike for its real decent length ride just now, nothing special just on the back tracks up near mine, about 4 or 5 miles total, bearing in mind it was so dark and my lights were so useless that i couldnt see this bike did extremely well, a few time i hit ditchs, and ruts which i hadnt seen and the bike just sailed through them! shame its hacky now though(the downside to the white frame)

you'd need the almost impossible to find specialised sharkfin.
