    Massi Tires - Rader Pro and Storm Pro

    Ordered these tires just for the hell of it and because I thought they looked cool and probably no one in the states is using them.

    My question is, which would you run up front?

    The 2.25 Storm is lighter, has ramped center knobs, but the edges look bigger. 617 grams

    The 2.20 Rader seems to be more of a front tire, but is smaller in size - supposedly. 625 grams

    Won't be mounting these for awhile as it's Fat bike season, but looking for ideas.

    There isn't much information on the web, but from the pictures I could find, it looks like most bikes are running the smaller tire up front.

    I'd run the Ardent in the back and the Ikon up front for hardpack.

    These aren't those tires.

    The rear Storm marked 2.25 come in significantly less at 2.16".

    The 2.20 Rader come in around 2.21

    His point is that they are blatant rip offs of those tread patterns. Take a look at the Ardent tread pattern and compare.

    That wasn't my point specifically, but I was putting a little humor along with answering his question by giving my opinion on front and rear. Especially since it's hard to tell which is which.

    Have fun with the Ardent - Iím not the biggest fan, but a lot of people like it.

    What is hard to tell? Seems to me you didn't read the first post. The tires are clearly marked by weight and size even if the name is not shown.

    And that was my point....which one to run up front? But please move on as it's obviously just another post for you and you can't add anything meaningful.
