    Indoor/Ramp tire recommendations?

    What are your favorite tires for riding dry wood & concrete? I've got some hefty wire bead Specialized rubber on there for now, but looking for something lighter. For a 26" DJ. Thanks for any help.

    Small block 8 tomac Kevlar. They are more expensive than the standard SB8 but can run up to 80psi as compared to 50psi. Better for keeping speed and saving rims from ramp thrashing

    The Intense MK2s aren't available any more. I had them before and they're good tires, but seem to cut easily.

    I'm also not sure why anybody would recommend a knobby? I don't ride that terrain specifically, but I don't get it.

    I picked up a pair of these the other day; they're awesome on hard pack and hard pack with a thin layer of sand on it:Products Tyres Supermoto

    I don't see why they wouldn't work better than any knobby tire on wood & concrete.
