    Maxxis DC vs Maxx Speed?

    I'm looking at getting a larger volume medium duty FRONT tire...specifically the Forekaster 2.6. Depite the Maxxis website saying DC and 3C Maxx Terra, seems this is an error and all the shops carry DC and Maxx Speed, which is odd because those seem to be awfully similar.

    In fact, I'm trying to determine which would offer better grip between the two. Anybody know the harness/softness differences in the center blocks and shoulder knobs?

    I dont ride much wet, though some roots on occasion, so probably doesn't make a too much difference for my use...

    Curious too. I THINK the 3C (even the MaxxSpeed) is still softer than the DC so grip should be marginally better with the 3C.

    Curious to know as well. I ordered a set of 2.6 ikons with plans to run Maxx Terra on the front and DC on the rear, but instead of Maxx Terra I received Maxx speed.
