    Tire choice for Southeastern PA

    I'm going to be in PA for Xmas and new year. It's been a while (about 14 yrs) since I've been mt biking in SE Pa. I used to live in Boyertown and was a regular at French Creek and Blue Marsh. I now live in Sedona AZ and the tires I use here are completely different than the tires I remember using in PA. I've called a few of the shops I used to frequent and they gave suggestions for Conti. Mt. Kings, Ritchey Z max classics and Nokian NBT. Anybody have any other suggestions?
    Thanks!!

    In SE Pa. I used everything from Bonty XDX's to Exiwolf's and Michelin AT's. My next pair will be Bonty Jones XR's. I think the Conti. Mt. Kings should cover about 90% of the trails in this area.

    I use Pannaracer Fire XC Pro's becuse they are light, predicable, and have nice grip.

    Depends on what kind of tire your going for... Mtn Kings are definitely awesome in this area, but I'm currently running 29x2.2 Karmas, which work just as well for me.

    Out of curiosity what tires are you running now?

    I rode Fire XC Pros last winter and this summer and just switched to Mt. Kings. I've really liked the Mt. Kings recently. They shed mud much better than the Fire XCs, which is huge for me.
