    Michelin XCR (old XL-S) UST as a front tire?

    Hello,
    I have UST Mavic Crossmax XL wheels on a SC Blur. I'm a havy rider (over 200lbs). Currently I'm using Schwalbe Fast Fred UST 2.0 tires but I would like to try something more aggressive,not wider than 2.1". I'm considering new dual compound Michelin XCR MUD tire, which is similar to old XL-S. It looks like typical rear tire. Can I use it also at a front wheel or you recommend other tires for front like XCR DRY?

    I've used the old XLS as a front before with no problems. The Dry tread is very minimalist and will only work well on dry hardpack, it's not a good allrounder.

    How about an XCR A/T (new all mountain tread) on the front and a MUD on the back?

    By the way I'm running the All Mountain 2.2 UST on my full susser (also Xmax XL wheels) and really liking them. I wouldn't rule these out either for your weight.
