Tire/Rim Questions

I have a set of Sun Ditch Witch rims coming on my brand new Kona Stuff. The front tire is 2.3'' and the rear is 2.1''. My question is how wide of a tire can i put on these, i would love to go wider than 2.3" on both the front and rear.

I think you can go upto 2.7? on ditch witch rims. But i think that the max (recommended) clearence on the fork is 2.5, and the frame can only fit 2.4 on the back (you could try 2.6 but be warned).

I guess they're 1.9 inches wide.
