my Panaracers fire xc pro tires really love the damp dirt in GB.
I second both suggestions, it's what I run...Clintox50 said:WTB Exiwolfs are great for wetter conditions and WTB Nano's for everything else. All GB needs is good cornering nobs.
I'm running a Captain on my front now and a Nanorapater on rear (I'm too lazy to change it for winter)...kyleharder said:Small block eight in the rear and some captains in the front should be sweet.
I would say most medium spacing with medium knobs would be good out there in winter, if not all year. Im sure theres some stinkers with that criteria but stick with something popular at the shops and you should be fine. Ive had good success there with Maxxis Ridgelines(only in the summer though), Mountain Kings, Fat Alberts, WTB Stout, WTB Weirwolf, and the WTB Weirwolf 2.55lt. The 2.55lt is definately the best dry conditions tire there and the other 4 are all a little overkill, especially the Stout. The Weirwolf is probably the closest to a reasonable XCish (without getting too AM) tire for wet conditions at GB, although it does have a tendency to pack up at times. Maybe the 2010 WW?Bokchoicowboy said:Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I have not been too unhappy with the Velociraptor on the rear. It is pretty predictable, and even loaded a little bit with some mud it has not lost grip.
The front Velociraptor on the other hand is what I am mainly concerned with. Just a little bit of mud loading and it is slipping sideways unexpectedly. So something with a little bit more aggressive side knob is in order?
