    Need a suggestion for a tire that compares to the 29 IRD Fire XC

    I have run these for years and loved them; however, apparently they are no longer being made. Could someone give me some suggestions for replacements. I felt that these tires were great! Decent weight, great grip (affected rolling a bit) and were bombproof tubeless. I can't believe they quit making them I corner hard and ride pretty aggressively; I also ride a good bit in chunky conditions. I used these for every application: XC, racing, endurance, AM, etc.
    Thanks for any help folks

    Lots of online retailers still have them, if they are a tire you really like then stock up a bit.

    IRD Fire 29er XC Pro 2.1 Tires

    Otherwise look at the Specialized Ground Control 29" x 2.1" which are Tubeless Ready and weigh 670g which is less than the IRD tires.
