    Park and single track tire

    Need a set of new tires, as mine are compromised and I only have a spare srt of Nobby Nics. Going riding at Snowshoe for a week( flow and tech trails, than doing some single track in N GA with heavy leaves on the ground. Also a side trip to Bakers Creek( hard pack clay). I am trying to decide between 29x2.5 Wt Exo+ MaxTerra Ass Guys F/R ,or 29x2.6 DHRII exo+ max terra F/R. ( like them front or rear, and want to try them front and back. Can get a good deal on either. Only ran the dhrII's in 2.4 wt, and would prefer a tad wider footprint. I ride pretty aggressively and am not worried about a little weight.

    Never tried the Assagei's but have used DHF's, Butchers, and Marys.

    If you're not too concerned about weight or RR, the Assegais are the grippiest tires on the planet. Or damn close.

    I wouldn't go full F/R with Assegai's as that's too slow. Currently I have a 2.5 Ass exo+ on front and a 2.4 Dissector Exo on the rear and like it very much. I also have a Dissector Exo+ on order but who knows when that will be available but it's on Maxxis website.

    You could always run Assegai 2.5 front, dhf 2.5 rear. Seen that combo on quite a few pro EWS and DH bikes

    Hey great, thanks everyone. I forgot to add the Kenda Pinner ATC/ AGC tires. Word is that even the ATC casing is pretty tough, somewhere comparable to exo+ ?
