Emonda with wheels for dirt

Hello All. I currently own a Trek Emonda S with Shimano Tiagra components. There are a bunch of dirt roads around me that I would like to explore but I don't trust my 23mm road tires to not get a flat. Does anyone have any recommendations for possible rim/tire options to increase durability? I have found very mixed answers on what size tire Emondas can fit. Thanks in advance!

No advise on what will fit... But I tried kenda kwiks in 30mm for a bit on my surly steamroller and was impressed for how cheap they were. Lots of 28mm options out there like the maxis refuse, panaracer gravelking, schwalbe g one, etc

3 cross 32 spoke.. regular rims.. they race Paris-Roubaix on tubulars .. But most people like wire bead.

Kevlar is lighter substitute for steel wire, I cannot say what will fit either..

I have 28, which fit OK , more like its 25, on my old steel RB 1 Bridgestone.. Mavic E2 rims.

I suggest you measure the width of the inside of the frame ,

the brake may be the low point over the tire, before the width is too tight.

Max size depends on inner rim width, brake type, etc. I would recommend seeing what your LBS has available and if they can provide recommendations w.r.t. size.

the sl6 can fit 28s. Not a ton of room around them if its muddy at all though.
