Maxxis Tires?

6/14/2014 9:55 AM

Ive have been a fan of Maxxis tires for awhile. Ive had M-Treads and Miracles, both great tires. Ive been looking at the DTH's and Grifters. Wondering how these tires perform? Ride mostly Park and Dirt, light street.

This is very true. He's ran Holy Roller in Front and Grifter in back for years I guess. I wonder how well Holy Rollers would work for park though?

Yeah, I rode a Miracle on the rear for almost 3 years, now I keep it as a spare. Its been a great tire, I was a little skeptical at first but loved it.
Are Holy Rollers a pretty good all round tire?

I have a hookworm on my DJ and they're legit ! Slightly heavy but who the fuck cares

Isn't the rizer Devon Smillie's sig tire or something? And it looks pretty rad

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

DTH's from what I recall were set up mainly for racing as they have among the lowest rolling resistance out there and are decently light. I didn't have too many customers when I worked at the shop that bought them, so I never got a solid idea of how long they last at a track, let alone on the streets.parks.

I recall the sidwalls being thinner, so if you grind like I do, no worries, but if you grind like most of the kids out there and drag tire super badly, that may not be a good thing.

When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same, out there for the fun of it, the challenge of progression, and the personal accountability we have for the results we get. There are no teams to let down, no coaches to scream about a missed pedal, and no obstacles that cannot be overcome.

The Maxxis grifter are worth every penny. Dirt riding? I only rode with grifter on the back wheel. Park riding? Super solid tire, not much flex to the tire? A big pain in the a** to get on the rim.. Tire lasted me for years till a piece of glass sliced it.

Mirraco is my ride!!

I'd get the rizer. Seems super legit.

I ran Holy Rollers for a year or so, they decent on dirt, but nothing specialy on street. I asked Bob to get me some street tires, he told me he would take care of it, and that's what he ordered. Told me no returns, so I ran them. I was bummed about getting dirt tires but they worked ok.

i ran a holy roller in the front a while back. it was a decent tire and it had alright grip but it can only hold up to 60psi and it didn't last me quite as long as i hoped. it's mostly meant for dirt but i ride 99% street and park lol

I know Devon Smillie helped design the Maxxis Rizer and swears by it. Devon knows what he's doing.

Thanks everyone for the serious input so far, I appreciate it. Sounds like the Grifters are favored overall and I dont know to much about the Rizers but I'll have to look into them more.

I had the M-Tread, a little heavy but they're very durable tires.

I ran Minions F and Minions R as well on my MTB.
I will never run another brand of tires on my mountain bike.

It's sad when everyone takes the side of the pathological liar.
i bet he doesn't even tighten the bolts because he just tears it down after building it.
