    GT Avalanche 3.0 What to buy after busting front Tyre (stock MAXXIS Sphynx)

    Hey dudes and dudettes!

    I was hoping you guys could me clarify on a tyre issue.

    So i managed to finish my first MTB event (with broken eye glasses, broken phone) but i totally busted my front tyre, even after changing the tube the side of the tyre feels it has the consistency of a childs baloon...itīs way to elastic...

    so itīs time to get new tyres, but here is the kicker, buy one set of tyres for all round porpuse or getting two sets (but they have to be cheaper), because unfortunely most of my riding is inner city and i want to continue to go on trails i am left with this doubt.

    Riding the city totally eats up my tyres (itīs not a flat city) so i would like to know, is it worth it to get a set of wheels with cheaper compound just to ride during the week and change to good mountain ones when going on trails?

    what would you guys do?
