Recently popped some ea 90 xc 29 UST rims on my 2k12 spec rockhopper comp 29. I've put a good five hours of internet snooping trying to decide upon a great set of new tires for the ride. I ride in Phoenix so it's mostly rocks and don't need anything to survive mud/wet/road conditions. The specialized captain sports on my front are somewhat alright, but leave me wanting a more comfortable ride + grip. The fast trak sports on my back are trying to kill me, slipping constantly and every rock throws my butt off the seat. Climbing traction is also important, something the fast trak is having an issue with.
Every tire review I read on MTBR has conflicting reports from people that live in AZ. Nothing has really stuck out and blown me away.
Is it worth going UST/TNT type tire (weighs more) or just stick with a regular tire and seal it up? Any tire combo's would be appreciate, thank you.
