    High Volume REAR AM tire run tubeless

    Well my 2.4 Fat Albert triple nano is just about worn out and has a bunch of sealed slits in it - and I'm looking for a new rear tire to put on my enduro.

    Looking for something more durable than this tire. Would be willing to go to 900 grams - with or without UST - I'm running Flow rims.

    Considered the new Mountain King 2.4 - but UST doesn't appear to have Black Chili. - Worried about protection with the fast summer months ahead in the sierras holding up well

    Also - the nobby nic is 880 grams - sounds ok - but their website shows that it is less durable than the 650 gram tubeless ready one? WTF?

    Maybe the 2.4 purgatory amadillo or UST -
    Armadillo is same weight as fat albert - would i be just trading rubber?

    Any other Big tires for the rear?

    Ardent 2.4 is big volume. It's durable enough for me, casing wise, but the side knobs wear fast. Not great on the rear for me, because it loses grip under braking if not straight up or real leaned. But if you want fat, it is that.

    yea that volume is very nice. knobs a little small for a skidder tho - your right.

    maybe the new High Roller 2 in 3C would be good. just worried about the rolling resistance on that compared to the MK and NN.

    TL-Ready, SnakeSkin Black-Skin PaceStar 23-50 650 g

    Snake Skin is the reason and i think they rock. I have a pair of 2.25s and they are plump esp with your wide rims. Very durable and will stay on the rims due to the fact they are stiffer.

    Im rocking the snakeskin 2.4 FA rear right now, and looking for something more durable. Might consider the 2.4 NN UST

    Mountain King 2.4 Protection is both tubeless ready (RTR as Conti calls it) and Black Chili. It's a nice beefy high volume tire. I run one on the front and really like it.
