How tall is it compared to other brands 2.4/5/6 offerings do you reckon?
It measures just over 29.5" on a 30mm inside width rim. I believe that is on the taller end of the spectrum for a 2.4.
The only thing I have for comparison is a 2.4 Minion DHR WT in 27.5. It measures right at 27.5 or just a hair over. So including ttakingwheel size into account the xr4 seems to be taller. It's a larger casing in general, it also measures wider lug to lug even though the side lugs are a little shorter than the minion. Not that this is huge news, since we all know maxxis tend to be optimistic on their sizing, but that's the comparative I have handy.
