I'm building up a new bike and want tires made for street riding. Any suggestions? I've heard Fit FAF's are good

Eclat mirages! Lightweight and they have like an extra wall on the sidewall of the tire to help you keep sliding. I have yet to try grinds but I do a lot of ghost feebles on small things like cement curbs and the Mirages allow me to slide instead of grab like my other tires have in the past.

BSD Donnasqueaks or BSD Donnastreets... pretty much same thing just different tread patterns...

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Bsd donasqueeks are supposed to be good. I really think they are made by Maxxis. Anyone know if that's actually true? Any Maxxis tire is gonna be good. Grifters may be a little light. I think the rizers are an awesome grippy street tire. I don't like anything to slick, especially for street riding.

I understand needing something trippy. Roads aren't great where i live, so the more grip the better

Did not enjoy FAF's but that was in a park environment. GLH's in 2.1 are perfect. No clearance issues, you bike wont bounce around like a basketball and look stupid, look awesome, feel fast.

My bike is coming with 2.4, is that something you guys would change? I didn't see anyone mention 2.4

I've always loved 2.4s on my bikes, I find that anything lower than 2.3 is horribly twitchy and pinch flats too easily. Can't see myself going above 2.4 either though, I tried a bike with the 2.5 Cult AKs and it was noticeably harder to turn and felt like it was losing speed really quickly.

2.4 Fit T/A front and back ftw

If you ain't fallin you ain't trying.

2.4's are slower. I run around 50 to 60 psi in my faf's, I do a lot of bump jumps, haven't had a single pinch flat whilst using these tyres

KHE x Dan Lacey 2.4' all the way. light, cheap & durable.

2.5 ak tire is the shit

What about the GLH up front and ASM in the back combo?

When I did ride street, though, I would second the FAF pair front & rear.
