    ask in the 29'er or better yet, the "Wheels and Tires" section

    Considering your intended usage, I'd likely go with
    it's a challenge some of us are ultimately worthy of.

    In all honesty, just get some cheap 29er tires. doesn't sound like grip or tread pattern is all that important to you, and the cheaper tires usually have heavier denser rubber which will list longer on gravel/road use, but still work fine for casual trail riding.

    But then again..........A little verbal abuse in the morning can get your blood going too, perhaps he's out of coffee and just baiting us

    i like my specialized ground controls 29x2.1s. they roll fast and grip everything. wear is great as well. they are firm tho. if you want some squish get the 2.3s. what fat bike you putting these on? can you buy wide hub wheels or do you need to make your own?

    I've been pleased with Maxxis Ardent EXO's- they hook up well and mounted up tubeless easy. Have been very durable thus far. I'm running the 2.4" on my Fuel.

    Probably because you failed to mention that it was a wheelset for your fat bike in your original post.

    700 x 25c maxxis refuse (wicked grippy tires) @ 95-105 psi depending on how fat you are, or not. I run these tires on my kona jake the snake and they slay dirt/gravel roads and moderate singletrack. way more fun than mtb or even cross tires for said conditions. Then when you pop out on the pavement, the 240 +- gram tires slay that too.

    I know guy, i'm not even drinking. I was just letting you in on the fact that road bike tires on a road or cross bike can be way more fun for the conditions you seek.
