Making the switch to UST and need suggestions for tires...

now using 2.3 nev rear and 2.4 Fire FR front...would like similar high volume in UST....i ride all terrrain except mud/roots (soCal)

any ideas? anyone try the Nokian 2.3 or the Bulldog 2.3? I know they make the nevegal in 2.1 UST but i'd hate to go that thin

thanks for any feedback

Hi and welcome to life with no tubes !

I'd suggest to start with reading similar discussions, lets say this one.

Next, avoid Bulldogs - still have a pair lying around somewhere... Hutchinson make much better UST tires - say Piranha and Baracuda.. read here

Also, this topic is also neat.

GL - you are about to love the new setup !

My NBX non-UST is a great tire, but not big volume like the FR and Nev.
Hutchinsons tend to have big volume, but if you check the reviews, Bulldogs aren't popular (maybe in dry Socal they will be ok though).
Spider 2.3 would be a good choice, or maybe one of the new ones (Pirahna?).
