    Racing Ralph / Race King / Wolverine

    Hola!

    My buddy needs a rear tire for XC / Marathon / Trail riding. He'd use Rocket Ron 2,25 as a front tire.
    He was thinking of Racing Ralph 2,25 as a rear, but I suggested Race King 2,2 and Wolverine 2,2 as well!
    What do you think? What are pros and cons of each tire?

    Cheers!

    Mostly harpack or loose over harpack with some roots and rocks, in all, dry to wet conditions.
    Universal tire, we could say...

    Oh, just to highlight this... it should be a good climber!

    If you could lose the "loose" and "wet" from the requirements, I'd say Racing Ralph with SnakeSkin sidewalls. Now I don't know....

    OK
    Let's lose the "loose" and make these "dry to wet conditions" "dry to very moist conditions"

    I see people have voted.
    Thanks for that!

    But could somebody say something about these tires and maybe compare them in a way...?
    Cheers!
