Hey guys I have a question about tires and wanted to see what your experiences have been. I ride a lot of dirt and I ride street a lot too. I run an Animal MTT in the back in 2.10 and run a Demolition Machete in the front in 2.35 and that tire sucks! No grip and gets flats like nothing! I used to run a Maxxis DTH tire up front and that thing was amazing. Thinking about going back to that tire but I wanted some extra advice on what's a good all around dirt and street tire? Thanks in advance guys

You got the right brand. Animal GLH is what you need. TWW is good on rear on packed dirt trails..
I ran the MTT for a while. That's a beefy tire. GLH is a happy mediem tire

Yeah man I figured I was on the right path with the animal. This MTT is a good tire! I love it so far. I'll look into the GLH for sure

I'm keeping the MTT in the back for the time being since it's pretty new but I'll give the GLH a shot for the front and see what happens! If I don't like it I'll toss it and pick up something different

Honestly i think you'll be better off with the MTT in the front and with the GLH back. Youll get more grip up front which is important for dirt. Knobby always goes up front.

I ran Maxxis grifter for years. Tryed Animal GLH and loved them.
20x2.25. is a wide tire. Great for up frontfor street/ dirt
I like thinner tires, so 20x2.0 is ideal for me

Yeah my MTT is a 2.0 which is perfect. Going to throw the MTT up front and go with a GLH in the rear and see how it goes

I've got fit faf's in 2.25 front and rear. I really like them and am tempted to stock up before everywhere runs out

Forgot about that... What caused the production to stop, anyways?
