Question NORCO query - tyre size option

Hello, all
I have an older NORCO Olympia hybrid and have brought it to Saudi Arabia.

Whilst I still do some urban rides, I am keen to mount some knobby tires for rides on desert trails.

Does anyone know if 700 x 40 or 700 x 44 knobbys will fit the back of this bike?

Bike shops are rare, so I need to order in based on your collective knowledge.

Ever grateful!

RIDE ON!!!

Howdy, There's not much info on those bikes but looking at pictures it looks like a typical narrow chainstay hybrid and 44's wont fit and 40's would be a gamble. Anyway wouldn't desert trails over there be deep soft sand? Maybe you need a Surly Pugsly!

Many of the trails are hard-packed, but with fine sand and rocks. Not what you might expect.

Thanks for the info!
