    Fast Trak Control 2.2 vs. Racing Ralph SS 2.25 as a rear tire

    Hi everyone. I'm trying to decide on a new dry weather rear tire and I'm stuck between the Fast Trak Control 2.2 and Racing Ralph SS 2.25. Does anyone have experience with both tires? I have two years of experience with the RR and love it. The only reason I'm asking about the Fast Trak is because it is cheaper than the RR and I've been happy with Speci tires in the past.

    How do these tires compare in durability?
    Volume?
    Rolling resistance?
    Traction in corners?
    Braking?

    I will be using it as a rear tire only. Plus, it will be setup tubeless on a Velocity Blunt 35 rim.

    Thanks for the help!

    I really like the RRSS 2.25" on the back, have been riding one for about 3 months now. Volume is OK (not great, but mounted on narrow Crest rims), rolls very fast for the amount of traction (climbing, cornering and braking).
