im not that experienced in tires but i currently run maxxis high rollers, they are amazing fro mud traction where othere people said they dont work well, run those front and rear and it will work greatd34thc4p said:thanks for the info...i live in the hills of the appalachains with lots of creeks and streams in the mountains so when it rains the grouns stays wet for awhile. maybe the moto raptor would make a better rear tire...or maybe the wierwolfs front and rear?
i LIKE to capiTOLIZE random WORDS too!!!!!1!!!ianjenn said:Here is the DEAL. WTB no longer makes the LASER cased MOTORAPTOR 2.4s and that sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I have ridden them down TUNNEL trail in SB with 17lbs and put about 6 dings per rim and never flatted. They are GOOD tires and roll well. I now have a WEIRWOLF in front and a MOTO in back the last LASER I own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you can get LASER motos get, if LANCASTER got 21st in the 2001 WORLDS on em they are probabley good enough for all. I guess I like them due to good luck
the sheep intestine doesnt work, trust me...even inflated with fartsHot Butter Topping said:I have to concur on the Timberwolves. Worst tires I've ever ridden.
Last year at Snowshoe in September it was bone dry, supposedly the sweet spot for these bastard tires, and all they did all weekend was wash out whenever the trail had the smallest amount of loose over hardpack (like 2" deep gravel). They never once felt secure up front.
If you want dry condition tires go for Maxxis Minion Front or a Mobster or a Highroller or a length of sheep intestine stretched over the wheel and inflated with farts. Anything, even the latter, would be better than a Timberwolf.
That said, anyone want to buy my pair of 2.5 Timberwolves? Only $25 for the pair! Ridden down two trails only!
I run a Moto 2.4 in front (can't see this as a rear tire at all) and a Kenda Nev in back. Ive been liking this combo in all conditions other than really tacky mud (where nothing does well). Kenda Kinetics are nice too (and cheap) but wear fairly quickly and don't have the sidewall strength of the Moto. Try the Moto up front, I think you dig it.RadChad said:throw some MotoRaptors on.... all smiles:thumbsup:
