    i have had good luck with maxxis minion dhf on front and rear in a 2.5 and maxxis highrollers 2.5. if you can find them in the 60 compound they will last longer.

    I've run a combo of Minions and Highrollers and have been very happy.

    Sidenote: A friend of mine was too lazy to change tires and did The National on a hardtail with Hookworms. It was pretty funny, and he only flatted once.
