    Thatís not something they make from what I can see. Not listed on the website currently, or in the 2020 catalog. All 2.4ís and 2.6ís are wide trail.

    This is correct, its either 2.3 or 2.4WT and Exo+ only comes in 2.4WT.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    It's because EXO+ is a new technology, and since it's introduction they have also introduced WT as a new technology. So all new EXO+ tires will also be WT.
    WT is optimized to work on rims 30-35mm buy also performs well on rims as narrow as 25mm.
    You can get a DHR2, MaxTerra, 2.4, 29, Non WT in EXO or DD, but not EXO+.

    But I could be mistaken because .... Maxxis.

    Ahh, right on. Bummer I donít have that option any more.

    My rim inner width is 30.5 so I should be good.

    Canít speak from experience, but the idea with WT was that the profile of a regular tire became too square when mounted on a wide rim, so the profile on a WT tire is more rounded than a regular tire so it doesnít become overly square when mounted on the wide rim.

    Going the opposite way, mounting a WT tire is going to provide a more rounded profile than intended. In practice, that means youíll need a higher lean angle to engage the side knobs. However, it also means you can get to higher lean angles without going beyond where the side knobs can grip, which is why some DH guys will run 25mm rims.

    Just mounted 2.5 & 2.4 Minions on 29mm rims yesterday. Profile wasn’t crazy at all. You’ll be fine at 30.5.

    One distributor got them in August. I am thinking most shops were done buying tires at that point as they actually sat in stock for like a week an half.
