I just wanted to get an opinion before I dropped some coin on these rolls. Give me the good, bad and ugly.

maybe if you stuck a holly roller tire on the front wheel and a street one in the back which is the common setup of tires nowadays. there not so bad of a tire but i would use it for mainly dirt since the tire treads are made more for dirt. you can always get a street one in the back anyone that would suit you.

if u want that put it in front then get a primo wall ride tire in the rear, the best tire ever

Yeah... I pick up what you're throwing down. Tires are so damn mystical lately. All this trying to find the perfect tire BS is bogging me down. Low pressure tires are heavy and high pressure tires are, well, high pressure (my roads are rough). I'll get it right eventually.

I've heard good stuff about that tire. Does it hold up as well as they say?

Tioga Comp IIIs. All-time greatest tire.

Oh, and before some of y'all throw a fit, I'm kidding. It is the greatest tire ever, though.

Oh yeah... Those will never never die. Well, as long as they stop paving trails.

i use fly rubens, best tires i ever used so far. plus i dont run high psi i go like 50 in the back and about 60 in the front. plus my secret i use baby powder in the tires to prevent pinch flats. so far i havent got a flat since the summer or before that when i never used baby powder

I'm pretty sure I've seen some 'pros' riding that tire up front. I say go for it.

For $26/pair, I think I'm going to buy them and try them as a set first. If I need lower rolling resistance or better acceleration after a few rides, I'll slap semi-slick back on the rear. That may be the only way to know for sure.

I agree. If you won't feel put out by spending the money do what you're doing. Apply that Scientific Method, son! Godspeed...

if you ride straight up street or park go with some park/street for front and back your not going to need a dirt tire unless your going to ride dirt tires, if you do those and also dirt go with a dirt front and a back street

After some thought...

I have decided to go for a M-Tread 2.1 rear and a Holy Roller 2.2 front. My head hurts.
