    Tires for WI

    I have an EX9, I want tires that have some grip, speed and tubeless. Any suggestions?

    Schwalbe Racing Ralph is a great overall tire for Wisconsin. I ran those all last year without a problem. This year I'm trying the Maxxis IKONS, I hear they're great

    I've been on Panaracer XC Fire Pros 2.1s for around 5 years. Love the tread pattern for everything but really wet mud, but I dont ride often in the mud unless its snowmo trails or farm roads.I am thinking of moving to something meatier.

    I was running racing Ralph's till the rear decided it doesn't want to hold air. I'm now on geax saguaros and I like them. Fast and grippy.

    When I started reading this thread I suspected you'd say 27.5 diameter.

    Specialized The Captains seem to be a solid choice in the midwest. I see them just about everywhere and everyone is happy with them. I even owned a pair myself for a brief while and they where as expected a great tire. I now run a set of Maxxis Ikons 3C EXO and sometimes put a fat front with a Nate on.

    If your wheel is TLR Bontrager: XR3 TLR 26" (Model #09340) this is basically a copy of the The Captains (by my belief). Bontrager: XR4 (Model #09476) or throw this up front.

    H-Factors

    I was running Kenda SB-8s both front and back, and I recently switched to a pair of H-Factors.

    I have to say, both have strong points... I really like the roll of the SB8s on hardpack and most roots/rocks but hated them on off angle rocks and even moist soil. The H-factors are much more stable in turns, and are noticeably slower but still ok for how I ride.
