    Tire advice based on what I have

    So, my 2.3 DHF exo 3C maxterra up front is starting to wear out a bit, not dead yet though, as is my exo minion SS in the rear. I would like a little more climbing and braking traction in the rear. I have a mostly new 2.5 DHF 3C exo maxxterra that I want to put on the front but have a couple options for the rear based on what is sitting in my garage.

    Option 1: 2.4 WTB Trail Boss tough fast rolling. Pros: reasonably fast rolling. Yet grippy, cons: heavy.

    Option 2: put the 2.3 exo 3C DHF on the rear. Pros: lighter, more grip. Cons: slower rolling

    I ride a little bit of everything and ride mostly near Tucson (Mt Lemmon, AZT, Starr Pass, 50-yr etc...) so I like a pedal-able combo that can handle some enduro riding. This is going on a 2014 SC Tallboy LTC (135mm rear, 140mm front, 29er)

    What would you do and why?

    I would take my right hand, open up my palm and slap myself across my own face over and over again until I realized that I shouldn't overthink such things.

    Or I would post this in the AZ tire thread.

    You won't go wrong with either. I'd run the DHF to avoid at 1050 gram rear tire. Me? I'd get an Aggressor and be done with it.

    Yeah, I like the idea of the aggressor, I just figured Id burn through what I have on hand first to avoid waste. I feel like I am mostly weighing acceleration against rolling resistance with these.
