Well right now I am currently saving up for an anthem x2 bike to replace my 4 year old starter bike a fuel ex 70. From my research it appears that the tires that come stock on the anthem x2 are just not up to par for mountain biking. Right now on my fuel ex i just keep replacing the tires that came with the bike but I find them to slip ALOT during high speed cornering. I know tires are very opinion based but if anyone could throw out some solid options for me that would be great. I like to ride fast in all conditions so traction would probably be something more important then other factors for myself. I dont intend to use tubeless. One other thing that is important to me is a tire that can also handle some very rough and rocky trails that are technically challenging. Thank you for any help I can receive.
