I tried google and searching vital, but couldn't find anything recent. Has anyone had these tires? I'm really interested in the hookworm, but I'm kind of iffy on there being only 1.95 sizes. Does anyone know if they are a little thicker than 1.95 like some tires are a bit bigger or smaller than their advertised size? I don't care about something small in the rear, I just like a little bigger in the front. Any suggestions on a good front tire for a dusty park and some street? Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Dude those tires are shit in the toilet dog no one in the US should buy them. Grifters are insane. Super light and grippiest tire I've ever owned, especially on wood ramps. I used to ride a dusty wood part quite often and I could barely slide it out for my signature bike drifts. Downfall - they get absolutely fucked riding heavy street, I got like 3 holes in mine. But you said light street, so... grifters booyy! They're fast too and 2.10 in the back is like the sweet spot really. Odyssey tires are also super quality and the legendary Fit FAF's I've had like 4 of those

I've been riding Hookworms for 2 years now. No complaints. I am, however, pegless and ride park. Super grippy and thick walls. Love them! They stay around their 1.95" size inflated. I ride concrete parks with dirt from a nearby baseball field always on the quarters. They've served me well. I may, however, try the Grifters soon.

Sweet! I really don't do much grinds and all the street I do is pretty much just hopping up and down things. I think im just going to get another set of chase hawks in gum though

They're awsome tires for street , 1.95 is the best tire size , fill them up to 100 psi and you'll be flying Mach speed
