It's time to buy a new rear tire for my Kona Cowan 2008 as is a it too worn now and I keep gettin punctures almost every other day which is highly annoying!
The stock tire which came with the bike is a Maxxis High Roller 26 x 2.35. I was thinking of simply replacing it for the same tire or maybe going slightly bigger and was wondering what is the maximum width of tire this frame can accomodate??

You've got to check the tires. I've seen some 2.1" that were wider than 2.35" and other tires that would fit in theory but would wobble and rub when they spun.

If you have some friends with similar wheels you can always check the fit of the tires. Also most shops will help with fitting.
