What is the largest tire that will fit? 2.4 or 2.8? I know that Aventon says 2.8 but I have heard that some people have had issues.

Both tires, and rims, vary quite a bit more, among brands, than you might think. Not individual units, but specific types of rims hold to specs a bit more or less than others, and tires vary at the bead and heigth and width as well. It is quite possible that some 2.8 tires fit quite well, and some are just a bit too loose.

When you push the edge of the envelope, sometimes it does not work out well.

Also could be clearance issues in addition to falling off the rim type problems.

My rear rim came with a 28mm tire. I put on a 38mm, it was tight, had to grind of a bit of frame and brake mount. Replaced it with another, absolutely no go, inflated tire totally locked to the frame, no clearance, did a bit more grinding, no way. Much different tire. Went down to a 35mm, HUGE amount of clearance. A 38mm of the same "profile" as the 35 would fit no problem. The "profile", not sure if there is a better word, exact height and width, is what will vary. If you go oversize, make sure it is a wire-beaded tire. Tried one of the other kind on same rim, did not end well at all. Funny story.
