    Moab Tires

    I am going to telluride and moab....what are the best tires to use? My bike comes with Maxxis HRollers II but those are very heavy. I am between Nobby Nics SS 2.35 or Pacenti Neo Moto 2.3... Or just keep the Maxxis...Any thoughts?

    Also I have ENVE AM rims....will they hold up at The Whole Enchilada, etc in moab?

    I went last year with Maxxis Ignitor LUST on the front 2.35 and Tioga Psycho Genius on the rear 2.1. Both were run tubeless on 26" Stan's Flows. I kind of wished I had a fatter tire on the back a 2.2 at least since the ride can get pretty harsh. I didn't have any issues running "The Whole Enchilada". I did see at least 3-4 people that had blow outs but I wasn't sure what setup they were using I didn't stop to look . It can get very rocky so I'd have something with decent sidewalls at least. Id think those ENVE rims would be plenty since the Flows held up really well. I didn't do a lot of jumps but they are there if you pick up the speed - anywhere from 2ft - 5ft maybe.
