The Minion DHR II is designed to be the perfect compliment to the Minion DHF or High Roller II DH tires and is designed as a rear specific tire. Maxxis took the perfected DHF side knobs and added them to the DHR II, then created a ramped paddle tread of sorts down the center that is designed to roll fast and brake well while lasting a long time. It uses Maxxis's DH casing which is a dual ply casing, meaning the standard 3 plys are wrapped twice around the tire instead of once. This not only makes the tire much stiffer for better cornering and pinch flat protection, it reduces the risk of punctures from rocks and thorns. Lastly, a wire bead is utilized to prevent the tire from rolling off the rim, and a true 2.4 width makes the tire plenty large to tackle any downhill you can throw at it.

First of all I'll get rid of tubes, than change front to 2.50 single ply 42a with exo protection, rear to 2.40 single ply 60a with exo protection.
