I recently changed to a UST 2.1 Small Block 8 and I'm very happy with it. It's a fast rolling tire and with the right amount of psi the traction is unbelievable. I ride on hard pack most of the time and use 23psi.

I'm enjoying the Maxxis "HIGH ROLLER". They come in diff sizes. I run the 2.1 on the rear of the BlurLT. I ride them at 35psi (w/tubes). Like the name implies, they ROLL!!!

Kenda Nevegal on the front for steering!

I am using the WTB Weirwolf and it pretty much rules. I mostly ride Oaks. Aliso, sometimes the loop,(but you can run anything there) and LCWP. The tire is great. And I have had a lot of tires.

depends on your riding style... since you are riding a 5" bike I am going to assume you dont shave your legs and are not overly concerned with every gram.

I am riding a nevigal 2.1 in the rear and 2.3 up front. aggresive tread, solid braking and excellent cornering. The ramped center nobs roll fairly fast too considering how aggresive the overall tread patern is.

I just put the new ExtCavator tire from Kenda and it is a little slower rolling but braking is better and cornering is the same
