    Quality tires for FL landscape and dirt/sand.

    So I have a post in the 29er forum about the Giant Talon 0. Basically, the people said that I should probably switch out the tires for something better for my terrain.

    I was hoping to get some insight on what has worked best for the FL riders. Granted I do not want to spend a lot and would be even happier if I could switch out the current tires for different ones.

    Here is the link to the other post.

    Thanks all.

    Just swap out your front tire for a Kenda Nevegal and keep the small block eight on the rear. You could probably swap out that sm 8 for a Nevegal on the tire swap thread and will not cost you a dime. Make sure you get your tire pressure dialed before you start swapping tires out. Those small block 8's have a lot of grip at the right pressure. I ride all the trails in central Florida on a 29er and and I like the Nevegal on the front and a Hutch python on the rear.

    Thanks. I will also talk to my LBS and see if they can do something like this.

    I agree with Gator the small blocks are awesome tires if used in the right pressure range. I have mine set at 50psi btw.

    That is what my LBS said too. I was going to have them switched out, but probably not now.
