    WTB Mutano Raptor 2.2: will not stick to the road?

    I am wondering if anyone else has found the Mutanos a little squirmy? I bought a pair a month ago, rode 20-30 miles on them (wet/dry, road/trail), and they still slide around. Granted they are dry conditions tires, but I would think that they would stick to wet roads.

    I have been riding cross country trails since 2005, and bought these to replace WTB Prowler SS's, which stuck to everything. I could corner so well, and the Mutanos just don't inspire the same confidence. I don't think it is my riding style.

    They even slide on dry concrete...

    Any ideas?

    Small knobs with big gaps = squirmy on pavement, especially wet pavement. Higher pressures make it worse.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
