Guys, I really need some help picking out some tires for a new build. Still love to ride DH but after a year of desert riding I have really enjoyed pedalling again and see myself definately moving more towards Super D, AM and enduro type stuff. Basicaly drive up, throw on my lid and ride. Getting a little tired of always pushing 45 minutes up to ride DH and just dont feel I am getting time on my bike. I feel tires and brakes are crucial to me feeling confident so I dont want to screw up my tire choice. I run Minion dual plys on my DH bike and love em. On my FR do all bike I have loved Muddy Mary FR casing for a front tire but destroyed any Schwalbe on the rear. This past year I have been on Minion Exos and the drop in weight has been great and they suited the lose conditions perfectly. Now I am back home where conditions are more hard pack, a little lose over hard pack, lots of roots and rocks and with summer here and surface is gravel it will be mostly dry conditions. I am looking for light weight, fast rolling tires that will still give confidence since I will be hammering up the XC trails and bombing down the DH runs. My priority is to have an aggresive front tire that is light and rolls well. I am not convinced the Ardent is for me and the HR 2 in ST/3C is out of stock, dont run 60A in the front. So far I have found: Schwalbe Hans Dampf trails star 2.4" - great reviews, tubeless ready Rubber Queen BC 2.4" - mixed reviews Minion Exo ST - a tire I know but would like something faster and more suited to the rear choices below Really struggling for a rear tire. I need something that will handle fast riding through rocks but roll faster that the Minions. Again no Scwalbe on the rear for me. Durability is very important since I need to ride some tarmac to reach local trails if I plan to cover weekly milage and not always drive out to the local trail center. I dont like High Rollers on the rear because they wear too fast. I need a tire that has some breaking abilities and grips when leaned over but I am not worried if it is a little lose, I like to slide and steer with the back. What I can see as options: Rubber Queen 2.2" in BC UST - 2.4" will be too big I am sure and maybe uneccessary. Larrsen TT 2.35" Dual Ply 60A. Ridden a Larrsen on the trails a coupel of years ago but now on my track bike. Bronson AM 2.30" TCS - dont know anything about this tire but looks like it would work on the back and suit the fr4ont tires mentioned above We all know the price of tires so I dont want to dump cash on a tire that will suck. I have Minion Exos for my FR bike to use away from home in very mixed conditions. I have Dual ply Minions for my DH bike. I just dont have anything lying around to put on the new build so any help will be great. I will set these up tubeless and run around 27-28Psi front and 29-32Psi rear.
