    Anyone run DMR Moto RTs? Do they run big? How do they compare to Maxxis Holy Rollers in the same sizes? I've never actually seen them on a bike but the tread pattern looks solid so I'm thinking of getting a pair for street/DJ with only occassional indoor park riding. I run 2.2s now and I'm worried that 2.4s will feel really slow...

    Yeah, I had 2.4 R/T's on my eastern26 a couple of years ago and I like them a lot, but they were almost too big. Pretty heavy too.

    I'd go 2.2 for sure, and if you can, get their kevlar beaded versions if you can find them. I know they exist and drop a decent amount of weight, but have never seen them for sale on the NA side of the atlantic.

    I got a 2.2. A 2.4 would be big.
