I've been looking at tyres for quite some time and deciding don't make it easier when I haven't ridden any for the last 3-4 years. On top of that I used to prefer ~1000gr trail tyres, but now want something much lighter. I have a set of 2.35" Swampthings in 42a (~830gr) but I'm looking to see what sprinting joy a lighter (and narrower?) tyre can bring. I ride agressively so I will probably go for better cornering grip up front with softer shoulder lugs, and maybe gamble with a faster rolling rear? The terrain they're to be used in: Summers are 20-25C, sometimes +30C, so it does get dry but springs and autumns are really wet. Great riding area around my town because trails vary alot, but are quite flat. Rims are 19mm. But since I'm soon getting set of 17mm wheels I wonder what max width you recommend with kept cornering capability? The problem: I study so money is an object. Therefore it would be great if you could categorize your suggestions in "best budget" and "best performance" respectively. Cheers!
