Hi guys i have a set of irc downhill tyres. I know they are downhill tyres but i was given them as a gift and need to have them on my bike, they are 2.65 and 2.35. Will the 2.65 fit in any of the latest dirt jumper 3's from marzocchi?

It should. All of the 32mm lowers have a tire clearance of 2.7" for 04+
But remember some tires are bigger or smaller than what they claim.

ye, im thinking of gettin the dirt jumper 3's either 03 or 04 what are the chaces of fitting it in, i have quite a low profile rim aswell, unlike my rear trailpimp which is extremely high

The 03 lowers had less tire clearance. Something like 2.5, but im not sure. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

Tyre's = Tire's ????
Why the difference?

Tyre is the British English version of Tire.
Also, it's tires, not tire's.

This may futher damage my credibility here, but I actually jam a Mobster 2.7 through a '03 SuperT arch. Any rocks that get caught in the treads are instantly removed by the arch, which means I ended up putting a front fender on to block rocks flying in random directions from the front of the bike. Stay out of the mud with this kind of clearance, I might add.
It gets worse. I squeeze a Gazzalodi Jr through there in the winter, and I have even less room in the back... I had to re-true the rear rim AFTER I mount the inflated mobster 2.7 and rim on the bike.
