    Rolling speed: High Roller vs. High Roller II

    Does anyone have some good time on a HR2 with similar size and rubber spec to compare? I'm concerned with rolling resistance because I've now read plenty of HR2 reviews but none gave me a good sense which one I should buy if I want the faster rolling of the two

    I generally use the original for two different types of setups and riding: 1) the front with slant six in back as a fast setup for AM/XC and 2) the rear with a DHF in front for steeper, chunkier AM/FR

    Need to replace a HR LUST that I had a surprisingly negative experience with regarding durability that I posted about in the wheel and tire forum: Durability issues with MAXXIS High Roller LUST?!?!!

    I'm pretty sure I put as much thought into tire selection as I did buying my first house

    ahhhh shoosh! It occurred to me that I should have written the title in the form of a question...oh well.

    Somebody should know the answer; I mean this is pretty important stuff here!

    no experience here but an educated guess would be probably pretty similar. maxxis designed the hr2 for better cornering and braking.
