    Rear tubeless(ed) tire for spot

    Anyone here has experience with rear rubber queen 2.2 UST?
    How do they compare to a rear highroller or minion dhr?
    Grip? Rolling resistance?

    I've been running a stan-ed 2.35 dhf up front and crossmark 2.25 UST in the rear but now it's time for something with more loose dirt grip. I did enjoy the reduced rear rolling resistance though and don't want to go back to a boat anchor.

    Also I am trying out USTs after a long time stan-ing standard tires. Just a little sick of having to use a compressor and pray each time.

    Any tips? Thanks!

    Hi Tal,

    What kind of trails do you ride ? (and where?)

    Had a RubberQueen installed on a rear wheel for a few days.
    Thin sidewall calls for high pressure.
    Moderate rolling resistance and OK grip.
    Suffered a few snakebites at first, then pumped them up to a much higher pressure...
