So my rear tire is shot, It is a 20x2.0 I also have a 20x2.30 in the front. I am looking to get new tires and tubes. I am wondering what are the longest lasting tires and tubes,and if I can run a smaller tire in the front.

Tires you can hardly go wrong with Fit FAFs in 2.25 or 2.4 Also Fly Ramperas are pretty rad!

Gsport Ribcages, Odyssey Hazards, Demo Zero.

Usually people run a larger tire in front but do what makes you happy yo!

i am really liking my s&m speedballs
slick center, but enough tread outside of the center to grip well, low wear but plenty of grip
25$ apiece and 110psi rated

Okay but what about tubes? Also I meant getting a smaller lighter tire in the front not running a smaller than the rear tire. Sorry I really derped out when I wrote that

I use animal tires and hutchinson heavy duty tubes. Only way i get a flat is if i ride up stairs to hard. Animal glh tires are the way to go imo.

The weight is what makes the tire good! So thick stupid stuff like thorns and glass won't give you a flat.

Okay would the Schrader tube from danscomp be a good idea for an animal tire?

Tubes really dont matter a lot. I'm using whatever shit I got at whatever shitty store was close when I last got a flat. I think I have an 18 inch tube in the back cause the Walmart near the park I was at was out of 20 inch tubes.

As for tires, its all personal preference. I had some FAFs, but they were washing out a lot. In the summer, when I almost exclusively ride concrete tranny, I run 2.4\2.2 chase hawks. Now that its almost fall, and I'm going to ride more dirt, I'm running 2.45/2.25 Aitken's.

Look at the actual sizes in the description on danscomp
The 2.1 is really 2.28

It's about the same, maybe a little bigger. Both clear R32s fine.
