Hmmm....I'm running 26x2.3's and have no rub whatsoever. Is it with an HT 2-stroke engine? I've had very minor rub with some 2-stroke builds in the past....either flipped the dished sprocket over or added extra spacers to the rear sprocket rag joint. You can re-dish the rear wheel if worse comes to worse.

Running 1.9 or 1.5's would definitely help.
