    I went from Conti. Vertical Pros to Kenda Blue Groove fr/Nevegal rear and they are a step above the Verts. Traction on roots, wet logs and tree stumps is fantastic plus I love the way they corner!

    WTB tires

    I have tried a bunch of tires, and taking into consideration things like price, weight, traction, and sweetness, I like nothing better than WTB's line of tires. My fav's so far for skinny tires are the velociraptors. kinda like the old panaracer darts and whatnot. But, I now love the weirwolf 2.5's for the front (they are light as hell for a 2.5), and I just got the new 2.5 timberwolf for the rear. This thing has got SO much traction it is sick. You can't do any better in my book. I don't race, though, I couldn't feel a difference in rolling resistance if my life depended on it, and I love big, cushy tires. -t

    I love my WTB Mutanos. I have a 2.4 in the front and 2.24 in the rear. It has great traction and goes over loose rocks easily. These things roll fast in the dirt also. I just picked up two kevlar mutanos today to replace my worn out ones. These tires rock!!

    Not contis, I put a gash in them several inches long when they were pretty new.

    WTB weirwolf race 2.1 and specialized enduro pro 2.2 on the XC bike right now. A set of maxxis minions for the DH bike. Backup tires include, a new set of intense 909s, and a set of mutanoraptor 2.4s.
    I know in my heart that Ellsworth bikes are more durable by as much as double. AND they are all lighter...Tony Ellsworth

    WTB Velociraptors. They have excellent cornering grip, even on gravel, and the tread blocks are far enough apart that mud won't cling as bad. Oh, and they're cheap.
