I'm running a Minion/HR combo on my Chromag Stylus right now and it just seems to feel kind of sluggish. I'm thinking maybe a higher volume 2.4 or something, but still want it to pedal decently. I think my main goal is to get something that rolls well while pedaling, but still bites in the corners. Suggestions?

I really like the Kenda Nevegal 2.35 DTC as a rear tire. It's got a decent volume, rolls well, wears long, and has really consistent traction. I prefer the Maxis Minion DHF for the front tire. It's heavier but it hooks up a little better, but the Nevegal is also a decent front tire. For minimum rolling resistance you can even run their non-tubeless without a tube on a tubeless rim or ghetto tubeless. They're really light and pretty resilient. This is what I've run on my Nomad for years.

I've been partial to my WTB Bronsons, 2.3 TCS, and have had good results with them. I want to try their re-newed Moto for next year as well. Granted, WTB does support my riding, so I may not be the best to give an opinion, however, nothing wrong with a shameless plug for what works for me.

I would recommend Schwalbe Hans Dampf very big volume for 2.35,very sticky and decent weight at approx 760 grams.
Run them around 25psi and they stick to everything.
