    These were all my extra 26in tires (except for the Hutchinson road bike tire on the end) that I gave away when I went 100% 29er

    You are not the only one! Love them too! You can't ever have too many back up tires.

    I usually give my older ones away if they have some life in 'em. Rather they be used. I do usually keep a couple of spares just in case, especially with the S Arizona attrition rate to contend with.
    It's all Here. Now.

    I don't have the money to buy more tires...sticking with my crappy stock Bontragers until they're bald.

    I had a totally different picture in my head upon opening this. lol. My bike tire collection only consists of an extra set of 20" Maxxis Holyrollers for my BMX and a pair of CST Comp 26's I keep for spares. My car tire collection though.....two complete sets of 275/40/17 firestone firehawk wideovals, a set of 265/70/16 bfg rugged trails, a set of 215/40/17 falken azenis.... lol.

    the are not all $90 tires
    the snow tires for my car were only $75 a piece

    rocket ron / nobby nic are may favorite fall set up
    two nic's for Moab and Fruita when I can get there
    renegade and rocket ron during the summer when the trails are clear
    studded nokians to wave at the ice fisherman
    snow bike in the works
    even if the guy(I think it is a guy) Scott O posted most likely has better floatation than my big fat larry

    Are those 911 wheels I see in the first picture? If so I hate you, well regardless I hate you for having such a massive collection of tires.
    Sorry, that was the jealousy talking, I don't really hate you.

    My name is Dave and I buy too may tires. I feel much better after that, but I will still buy more tires!!!! It is a sickness like SJ I have a set for most conditions (Mix and match Schwalbe's are my fav as well) and back-ups for my back-ups... I purge them to friends often likely so I can just replace them with another...

    off the top of my head these are my current favorite flavors-

    Nobby Nic, 2.25, 2.35
    Racing Ralph 2.25 Evo, 2.25 Snakeskin, 2.4 ev0...
    Rocket Ron 2.25 Evo
    Rampage 2.35
    Captain 2.0, 2.2 controls
    WW 2.55's

    I have tried way too many others but these always seem to stick around... Here is to Rubber!
    I Just wish I could ride more!

    By the by, my boss got on my computer just now and I had this thread minimized. The task bar says "Rubber fetish......" needless to say he gave an me an EXTREMELY odd look and about had a heart attack laughing until I showed him the thread. He then proceeded to tell me he was dissapointed it wasnt what he thought it was lol.

    Ahhh, finally stumbled on this thread -- non-riders just don't get the rubber+dirt = !@*?&%!!! fascination do they? Just something about a tire that's like no other 'tool' out there -- so supple, dynamic, adaptable, capable of such delicious key functions... just nothing like rubber kissing earth!!!
