Thanks for the replies to my inquiry a few days ago about finding a larger replacement for my Survival pro as a front tire. It looks like most other tires like it are really just mud-specific, and I am thinking I should try something a little more versitile. The tire will be used as a fall-winter tire on the east coast. I do not care about rolling resistance.
Shiggy mentioned the Fire FR. I gave it a look and it looks like it could be the ticket. Good reviews overall, acceptable weight, and 9.8mm side knobs. I am a little concerned the knobs may be too closely spaced to really penetrate, but I'm willing to give it a shot, especially for the price.
In searching around I came across the WTB Timberwolf 2.5. Very similar specs to the Fire FR (weight, width, knob hieght) , stellar reviews, and I think the knobs may be spaced a tad wider, but it's hard to tell.
Any thoughts on these two tires? I tend to like a square profile, and I am guessing by the large difference in hieght of the center vs. side knobs that both of these are somewhat square in profile, is this a fair guess?
Thanks for any input. I would especially like to hear from people with experience in east coast conditions.
