    Tire help. WTB High Volume low resistance

    I recently got a set of 29er Wierwolf WTB 2.5 with TCS.

    They sort of worked with tubes and I really liked them, but they are incompatible with my stans rims.

    So, I need some new tires.

    I really want a set that works easily tubes or no tubes on my stans rims.

    Also, I want something durable. I am 210 lbs and ride sloppy.

    The Ardent 2.4 is a good alternative. Great volume and traction. The rolling resistance is not as good as some out there, but it's a good trade off. I'm 190 and a friend is 210 and we both run them on the front tubeless, on stans, at 18-20 psi.

    If by "ride sloppy" you mean you ride in sloppy conditions then low rolling resistance is really not the first concern.

    If that is the case check out Continental Mountain King 29" x 2.4" which work well with tubes and also tubeless.

    +1 on the Ardent 2.4 - tough as nails.
    If you want faster try a Ra-Ra 2.4 or new 2.35 -also big volume, lighter, yet not as durable.
    In wet & sloppy neither is as good as a Rampage, but much, much faster.
    The best is the one you want to ride most often..

    I went with a 2.4 Ardent in the front and a 2.1 ignitor in the rear.

    When I said sloppy, i meant I hit clip rocks and stuff like that. Not Muddy.

    Here in VA we do not ride our trails in the mudd. With the heavy traffic they get, they would get torn up.
