    Im running Geax Gato 2.3 Front and Sagauro 2.2 back on my YS. Works pretty well around here. I Like the Gato a lot, comparable to Nevagal in traction only lighter and faster.

    I went to Hans Dampfs on my last visit to Los Alamos and they worked great.

    2.4 Ardents and 2.35 Ikons currently. Good stout sidewalls, work well tubeless, compatible with the ubiquitous ust pattern bead profile, roll fast, wear like iron.
    A Useful Bear is a handy thing.

    Currently running Hans Dampf front and rear. They're pricey, but I'm getting a ton of wear out of them.

    The one I'm now running on the rear I had on the front for probably 1500 miles prior to moving it to the rear. It now had around 200 miles on it running in back, and it's still going strong!

    Kenda Honey badger front, Telonix rear. Telonix is too much tire for me but the HB is nice balance.

    29er: Front - Nevegal 2.3? maybe its a 2.2 Back - Trail King 2.3. Trail King packs up easily and doesn't shed, other than that, it's a good roll.

    26er: Telonix 2.4 front and rear. High rolling resistance, hooks up good when the dirt is nice, but seems to fall over the edge when cornering hard.

    Running getto Hans Dampf (Trailstar-triple compound) front and rear on a SC Nomad. Super sticky to the point that the rear picks up and deposits gravel in the front derailer/drivetrain. They work great for the varied terrain we have here.
