    Tires For AZ Trails

    I have just returned to mountain biking. I have a hardtail and I live in Prescott. My Tires are Ritchy Comp with widely spaced lugs that seem to slip and slide in the trails up here.
    Are there any folks that live up here that have success with one particular tire.
    I appreciate any and all advice.......

    My new favorite is the 2.2 Continental Trail King. I had Minions before and these are, dare I say, grippy like a Tassie Devil eating a Wombat.
    There is a big difference between ripping and skidding.

    I'm loving my current combination here in Prescott.

    Kenda Nevegal on the front and a WTB WeirWolf on the rear.

    I use Maxxis Ignitors, 2.35 on front, 2.1 on rear. Bigger in front for better control.
    I think wide spaced lugs aren't for the desert, too easy for the cactus and goatheads to hit the thin spots, lots of nubs are best.
