I'm OCD. I can't stand wheels out of true, ticking noises, noisy brakes, anything imperfect on my bike. (I hate it, it's an illness, and it's often tough to suppress on mountain bikes)

I installed some Kenda Nevegal X Pros on one of my bikes at some point and they wobbled so badly they rubbed the frame. After 2x warranties, I bought Maxxis.


Been running 29x3 Chupacabra on my Stache for 2 years. 1 had a minimally wobbly casing. Not too bad.

I installed 26x2.8 Rangers on my 27.5 hardtail and was a little disappointed in the mildly wobbly casing on the rear.

Time to replace the Chupacabras on the Stache this year. My wife bought me 29x3" Rangers for Christmas but I was pretty scared they'd be wobbly like the 26ers.

To my surprise, they're dang straight!!! So far they feel pretty nice... I'm gonna like them.

This happens from all manufacturers. Schwalbe, Continental, WTB, Maxxis, etc. One is no better than the next, they all have tires that wobble.

Ive run Chupas since they came out. Tried a Ranger and didn’t like the performance compared to the Chupa. Also, the ranger had some wobble I couldn’t get out.
