    Trying out the larger 2.6 xr4 myself

    I've always liked the xr4 ti tires but I'm now gonna try their 2.6s for the 1st time on my new wheels I just built. I'm sure I'll like them even more.

    I don't know that I personally do.

    Absolutely love the 2.4 XR4. But I found the 2.6 seemed to float too much on loose stuff for my taste.
    Still like the tire, don't get me wrong.... But I like the 2.4 better I think!!

    I also thought the 2.6 was too bouncy.

    I'll give um a try, but I dont like that review😁. They sure are beefy ass tires! I ride a lot of lose over hard pack with some rocky sections, and like a tire that sticks. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Oh, they are a serious set of meats.

    If it's hardpack or butt loads of rocks, I like them a ton. But, the float on loose stuff is what I didn't care for! Pretty high running resistance too I think. But again, serious tires!

    I think the XR4 2.6 front 2.4 rear combo is extremely good on root infested natural loamy trails. Great rollover and confidence up front, good speed and traction out back.
