    24" all-around tires?

    Any thoughts on a good 24" rear tire for jumping, ect..? There were a few from arrow and maxxis, but wanted to get more options. Thanks
    ....someday I may have as many posts as my age, but that day is a long way off......

    nokian gazzaloddi jr.

    I run the nokian gazzaloddi jr. on my kona stuff and it works pretty well. It is a 2.6" so it is pretty wide and somewhat heavy but works really well in most conditions.

    On my HT I run dual 24's IRC kujo 2.35 in back and a 2.7 HIgh Roller in front ... found that to be great combo for DJ's

    when it's dry I run a hook worm in the back, or when I hit the skatepark, dual hookworms 2.5.

    yeah...

    for all around i would get the specialized's........they weigh in at a pound and a half lighter than a full DH tire EACH so they make accelerating to jump easy......and they hook up in anything.....very "predictable" they never just give out.......run em 30 psi no lower and switch to DH tires for races/ ski resorts and you'll be set. Get the roller pro's NOT the heavy ass evil twin roller ones.

    Ditto - I run a gazzaloddi 3.0 in the back, and it rules. Loads of traction, especially at low PSI

    They simply fold in turns at lower PSI.
