    Spec SJ FSR 6F Tire Options

    I'm really looking to figure out what my options are for my Stumpy FSR 6F tires and there's info scattered over a lot of different threads. I'm running 27.5x3 Purgs on front and rear, but I'm looking for some better options for here in the PNW. With BB clearance minimal, I don't think a 2.8 would work very well, so what are my other 3.0 options? I know Maxxis HR2s come in 27.5x3. Others?

    I had nobby nic 3.0 on mine, worked good for summer conditions. Not that great for winter though.

    That's not good, I was hoping that they would do well in the wet. I've had decent performance with the Spec Purgs in the wet conditions, need a little more grip for the dry stuff. Looking at the Maxxis High Roller II's but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    Just to close on this, I ended up putting a 3.0" Maxxis High Roller II on the front end, and went for an 18 mile ride at Hansen Ridge here in the PNW. https://www.evergreenmtb.org/trails/hansen-ridge. It's a fairly difficult trail with about 3700 feet of climbing, Conditions range from packed dirt, dust over hard-pack, moss, chunky rock, and even a little swampy stream run-off. I was really happy with the grip on the front tire and it didn't even hint at washing out.
