    Newbie tires/wheel questions

    I just bought a Bontrager "SSR " wheelset for my 2011 Trek Fuel EX7, was on a guy's 2011Trek 8000... My bike came stock with Bontrager "Duster" rims and XR3 tires.

    I want to have "street/xc" tires on one set, and "mountain" tires on the other set.

    1. Which wheelset is better for the mountain tires?

    2. Which "mountain" tires should I be looking at? (I sill have the XR3's, but everybody says they suck.... Not sure why, I haven't had any real experience with them)

    Thanks!!

    1 The wider ones
    2 depends on what conditions you ride in. Search here first to narrow down your choices and ask again later.

    Going to run Continental X-King 2.2's (Black Chili) on the rear and Trail King 2.4 UST's (Black Chili) on the front. Using the Duster rims and going tubeless!!
