Hello everyone :D Me again! I am a strange rider. I ride both street and flatland by mixing street grinds while doing fork rolls n' other stuff like that. But anyways, I was wondering what size tire would work best for the riding. I run 70-75 PSI in my 2.20 tires now and it's pretty solid, but I wanted tires that also are small enough to make rolling resistance less while doing flat tricks.

Thanks :D

1.75 would be good for the back. Little bit faster , out of the way of grinds , better clearance.
2.125 Front -2.25 would be good for front end tricks. Looks better too.

Focus on the tread first , size after.

You say BMX is your life but you barely ride.

My Demolition Momentums are a decent fast rolling tire, BUT the sidewalls are thinner than most like. I never have issues, but a bunch of other dudes do.

Look at tread first, size after. I would say stick around the 2 inch wide, give or take a 10th of an inch.

I have a similar sort of riding style, and I ride a 1.95" Animal GLH on the back and a 2.1" GLH on the front.
