I think you'll be fine, I ran a 2.35(schwalbe) on a 30mm I'd in a frame with fairly narrow chainstays and only got a tiny bit of rub when in serious mud.

 

. The titan is boost front and rear, right?

The 2.35 tyre has about 6mm of clearance on the stock rim.

on a 30mm inner width rim you will reduce that clearance. Depending on how stiff the wheels are and the rear triangle you may get rub rub aginst the seat stays. That would not be covered under warranty

Boost doesn't help much at the rear as how the seat stays and BB to chainstays junctions are shaped plays a stronger role in determining your max tyre size. The fork will probably accomodate a 2.4 on a 30mm rim comfortably. The rear.... not so much

It definitely works.

 

I fitted a 2.4 Onza Ibex no issues. No rub at all with a set of Lyne 30mm ID XC wheels.

 

Those have pretty pronounced side knobs, so I would suggest a more rounded 'rear' tire with less side knob like a Maxxis Aggressor/Ardent Race/Ikon would fit pretty comfortably.

 

I now have a Spaz Purgatory 2.3 and it is a sweet spot of note.
