Having a nightmare getting a replacement Schwalbe Smart Sam in 29x2.35 for the back of the Ebike, it's fitted with an Alex EX23 rim, which states on it, 622x23 which I hope I'm assuming is 29" or 622mm by 23mm wide, the tyre as above is 2.35, I think I can get some 29x2.6 will this extra wide cause any issues?

Not for the rim but it may cause problems with the frame 'stays', how much clearance at the sides of the present fitted tyres.
