    2016: Reptile Encounter Tires

    What tires are a good choice for encountering reptiles. I ride Hans Dampf, but i think the snakeskin siding might be offensive to our local wildlife. Please help!

    All of my encounters have come while rolling on Spesh tires. However, I have yet to encounter a Gila Monster so my set up may not be the ultimate in this case.

    Let's hope the guys who have seen Gila Monsters chime in...

    Any Maxxis Combo I feel works best when encountering reptiles.

    Regardless of brand, aim for the head when rolling over rattlers.
    The only trace I leave behind is tire marks.
