i want to get a good set of road tires that are really wide. right now i am looking at a set of maxxis hookworms, but they only come in 2.5. i want wider because i do alot of cement drops on a hardtail, is there wider?

2.5s should be fine for cement drop. On my hardtail, I have maxxis 2.35 highrollers. I do 5' drops to flat cement. Just make sure you put inflate them enough so the bead doesn't compress (allowing the rim to hit the ground).
