I'm going there for the first time to race Nationals and need help selecting tires. My choices are any of WTBs fine products. I'm thinking either 1.95 or 2.1 ExiWolfs.

I say use what ever your comfortable with.

Everybody has a different opinion on tires...but what works for them may not work for you.

Perfect example: multi time Nat'l champ Paul Curley had a new-old-stock green Michelin 1.9 knobby on the front and and an old used green semi slick on the back.These tire were about 15 years old. Most people, including me, will tell you those things were horrible in those conditions 15 years ago....never mind now.He got second in the 50-55 Expert...and went a lot faster than most people with the latest greatest tires.When I gave him a hard time about running tires that were older than his teenage daughter, he said," they hold air and they were free, that's the perfect tire".

And hell...if you do poorly...you can always use your tires as an excuse.
