As a fat guy I have recently discovered the wonders that is double ply tires. As most of you know there are a ton of gravity and double ply tires out there....unfortunately most of them have soft compounds for the tread which makes them wear out quickly and feel draggy. I'm focused mainly on rear tires since running a sticky double ply up front doesn't have nearly the same negative effects.

Currently I'm running a WTB trailboss heavy/fast. I love the support and it rolls great but its looking like I may only be able to get 150-200 miles out of this tire.

So what else is there? Maxxis Aggressor DD dual compound? Michelin wild enduro rear? Any input would be much appreciated.

RUNNING LIST:
WTB Trailboss heavy/fast
Maxxis Agressor DD DC
Michelin wild enduro gumx
Vittoria TLR build

The Vittoria enduro E bike casings are a double ply with a little harder durometer center section to give it some more wear time and a bit better rolling. At least around here the Agarro enduro E bike tire works great on the back with a Martello or Mazza up front. I do run the regular trail casing up front.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've created a running list above for anyone else interested. I'm only seeing the Martello available in the TLR? Either way it looks like a good choice potentially.

Now you haven't written how heavy you are but i'm around 225lb and then add the normal park protection. I'm running the new gen Kenda tires and found the EMC casing (ebike rated tire) to work pretty well. They run the same compound as their normal ATC trail tire but with tougher sidewalls. Their DD'ish tires have an AEC casing and softer compound.

But the EMC have convinced me.
