    Post your tire setup

    Seeing the other thread about tires, I thought it would be a good idea if everyone just posted their tire setup. And rather than thread jack, I started a new thread.

    Front tire:
    Rear tire:

    Front: Kenda Nevegal 2.35
    Rear: Maxxis Highroller 2.35

    Haven't ridden this combo too much yet, but so far it shreds at the wiss and blue.

    Right now?

    Front: WTB Weirwolf 2.5
    Rear: Kenda Tomac Nevegal 2.35

    Light(ish), grippy, works anywhere I ride.

    Also LOVE the maxxis high roller 2.35 single-ply 'super tacky' as much as any rear tire I've ever had - EXCEPT - for how quickly they wear out!

    Currently running for Western PA terrain:

    Continental Trail King Black Chili 2.4 front / 2.2 rear

    They work well. Not quite as grippy in some conditions as the Nevegal 2.35 StickE that I was using before, but they roll a lot faster and wear better. And the 2.4 is a huge volume tire which I like, but also quite a bit heavier than the 2.2 version.

    29er:
    2.3 WTB Stout front
    2.55 WTB Weirwolf LT rear

    I think the Weirwolf LT doesn't grab as well as a Kenda SB8 would in the back, but the sidewalls also don't just explode.

    26:
    2.5 Intense DH (no clue what it is really, haven't ridden it yet) front
    2.3 Geax Lobo Loco TnT Rear

    They're all tubeless except the DH tire that has a DH tube in it. I use the matching Geax Lobo Loco TnT up front for days where I pedal.

    I run 2.3 UST Hutchinson Bulldogs on my main bike. They can be had for real cheap and they've always worked well for me in the SW PA region.

    I'm running 26" Nevegals but forget what size.

    When my new bike gets here at some point between the end of this month and December (who knows), I will be running a Surly Larry 3.8" front and Endomorph 3.7" rear.

    29er: Maxxis Ardent 29x2.4, tubeless. Last year ran Nevegal 29x2.2 tubeless and was pretty happy with it - no-fail-grippiness, but slower rolling and I wanted more air volume (bike is rigid). Stan's Flow rims (28mm wide). 20-25 PSI.

    26er: it's bi-polar....

    DH-days (Diablo, Blue Mountain, Plattekill, etc.): Nevegal 2.7 DH front tubeless, Maxxis Minion DHR 2.7 DH rear currently tubed but wish it was tubeless, on 31mm wide rims. 20-25 psi front; 25-30 psi rear.

    other-days: WTB WierWolf 2.5 Race tubeless front; Maxxis Minion DHR 2.5 Single ply tubeless rear; Stan's Flow rims.

    Last winter on the 26er I rode Intense 2.5 DH tires tubeless at 15-20 psi. Very slow rolling and heavy, but huge tire spread on the snow!

    I have a similar set up, except I'm using Mountain Kings 2.4 front and rear. I had the Nevegals 2.35 F & R before and I did like their grip, but they were the slowest rolling tires I have ever used. On a ride I do fairly frequently, I rode everything a chainring higher once I switched to the MK's.

    I would like to try the Nobby Nics to see how they compare and I have also heard good things about the High Roller (F) and Crossmark (R) when conditions aren't too sloppy.

    I've been running Vredestien Black Panthers 2.35's ( actually measure 2.45). They haven't done as well since the leaves started falling and they rub a bit on my rear derailleur cable on hard turns. These high volumes aired down to 30/35 lbs work great for rocky single track. I decided to go narrow and lighter. I just put on a set of Fire XC Pros 2.1's. They definitely bite a lot better, but I now bounce off rocks rather than roll over them. I need a happy medium.
