    Nobby nics vs maxxis advantage

    I was going to probally buy a Pair of Nobby Nic 2.25" Snakeskin Tyres but i heard that Maxxis Advantage Folding Tyres are also good.

    So should i buy :-

    Pair of Nobby Nic 2.25" Snakeskin Tyres
    for 49.46

    Or
    Maxxis Advantage Folding Tyre -2.1" Kevlar 70a 60tpi =22.46
    OR
    2.25" Kevlar 60a 60tpi type?=26.96

    thoughts?

    atm i tempted to go for the nobbys as they would be cheaper than 2.25 maxxis x2 but not sure 100%

    It's hard to say when we have no clue what you ride.

    FWIW, I have an Advantage 2.25 rear and a Nobby Nic 2.4 front on my AM bike. Both setup tubeless on Flow rims. I'm not helping, I know...
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    I have a Nobby Nic Evo up front and a Racing Ralph double defence ar rear. I had 9 puntures since summer and now with the double defence I have not had a single one at the rear. I put a downhill Michelin tube in too. This is a compramise. i was going to go tubless but will stick with this for now, this combo has been recommended to me several times. Mainly singletrack for me though.

    I always run Maxxis, just feel they are the best tyres I know you play that bit more but I like to know when im on the trail my tyres will hold up. just a personal preference though.

    Seems to me that running a thick, heavy tube like that in a light supple (expensive!) tire kind of defeats the purpose...?

    I don't hear too many good things about the Nobby Nic.
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    The thread is 8 months old so I'm sure the OP already made a decision. But I will chime in and say that I've been running Nobby Nics on my Stumpy for several months and I like them a lot. I switched from Conti Mountain Kings and I've found the traction to be much improved without sacrificing too much rolling speed. Granted I don't live in the desert mountains or anything like that, but there are plenty of rocks around here and the tires are holding up just fine. I have the Snakeskin version and I run them tubeless with psi in the low 20s.
