that is a real helpful answer...lolshiggy said:If money was not an issue I would have tires made to my specs and not care about the cost.
Budget or no budget, I'd take the same combo I'm running right now:superbabs said:all mountain alot of everything except mud not to much of that. and some soft sand like 2 inch to 5 inch deep
I almost always pick a different tire for every condition and whim.massmang said:that is a real helpful answer...lol
all kidding aside I would like to hear your opinion on tires that are manufactured already....
have you tried some real expensive tires that were really really good.. like worth the high price?
from what I can tell most of the high end tires are either race tires, that get great traction but treadlife is very short, because of the soft compounds used...
downhill tires that are very heavy with super thick sidewalls.
or studed winter tires..
but I am far from an expert.... still trying to learn myself..
I've run that too. Good stuff. Want to try the Weirwolf LT if the prices come down at some pointDawg Fu said:Budget or no budget, I'd take the same combo I'm running right now:
front - WTB Timberwolf 2.5 race
rear - Panaracer Cinder 2.25
bass-ackwards methinks - BG front, Nev rear.massmang said:I use the panaracer fire XC pro tires myself, and I like them alot... great company to deal with if you have a problem..
a lot of folks put the kenda blue groove on the rear, and kenda nevegal on the front.. both of these tires are cross country tires, as are the panaracers.. but for light free riding they are great...
