I would say close to the limit, but ok. Even if you try to avoid the big-big, it is prudent to have the capability to get there. Very bad things can happen with an accidental shift into big-big...

Physics says 99% of the time the damage/pain/death is the cyclist’s.

Check if the frame and fork have clearance for larger tires.

Just go 1x11 or 1x12. Not that much more expensive, but more range. Labor cost would be the same as going 1x10.
