What tyres should I put on my 2012 Giant Reign 1? I am more of an All Mountain rider, not much downhill. I ride on mainly grass, loose dirt, road, a bit of mud, etc.
I have been tossing up a range of tyres:

  • Michelin Wild Rock'r
  • Continental X-King/Mountain King/Rubber Queen
I will consider any suggestions.
I would like light and cheap tyres nothing over about $80 for two.

Your riding sounds more XC than all mountain. My XC rig has Schwalbe Racing Ralph with snakeskin on rear and Hutchinson Cougar on the front. Both are 2.25. My AM ride has Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 on front and a Hutchinson Cougar 2.25 on the rear.


I find the Continentals are good up front but slow on the rear. I haven't ridden the Michelin.

Pricepoint, Jenson, Backcountry, Arts, and Amazon all run deals from time to time. Worth checking LBS too
