    +1 for the highroller in the back

    Either a WTB Timberwolf, or Weirwolf (more AM)

    You need to check out the New WTB tires they are Awesome.

    The Dissent so far is killa on the front, trying out the Prowler MX tomarrow at Oat Hill wich is like a mini Dville.

    I like my cut michilin dh24 in the back so far. but have also had good luck with a minion dhr. if you dont mind the weight intense 909 hook up to everything up front. i think the next tires will be minion front and highroller rear--i hear so many good things about this combo.

    WTB Dissent > Maxxis Minions imo... oh wait... Scott is a guy who criticizes by word of mouth without trying... XD

    WTB doesn't list it as tubeless so i would say no.

    only for POS manitou forks. ive tried tried 3 diff wtb tires with less than stellar luck with all three.
    Havent heard of the dissent until today, looks like a decent DH tire. is it sigle ply though? doesn't say anything about that...?

    Personaly, I run Arrow front and back. Savage 26x3.0 front, Prime Wide 24x3.0 rear. I know, you guys are saying " wow , nobody runs 3.0 or 24" tires and wheels anymore". Look, I don't race and I'm not concerned with weight. This combo works great for the terrian that I ride. I once broke the rear wheel without flatting! These tires are tough! Oh, they do make smaller sizes, but why would you want that? Check out universalcycles.com, They have a wide selection of brands.

    Can you post up a ride report for this tire when you get back? Either here or in the wheels/tires forum. I'm seriously considering putting one of these on the front of my Reign X1, but I haven't seen much real world feedback about it yet and I'd love to hear what your impressions are.

    Going to ride the Prowler at Dom. tomorrow also, a trail i know well. Today's ride at Oat Hill was not very promising. It is a very predictable sliding front tire in the loose silt & small rocks. Traction on solid rock was great, it can hold a line without slipping down as the rock narrowed & turned. Personally i dot like the front to slide, but lets see what tomorrow has to bring up.

    Wow! 17 posts about tires and not one question about what the OP normally rides. Tires are very dependent on the terrain.

    Tough? Gazzalodi Jrs. All the Time. For rear? High Roller. Or the Gazzaloddi Dual 2.3.
