What tire set-up do you guys prefer? Fat and knobby front and back? Knobby just in the front? Skinny tire in the back to avoid rubbing on a rail or ledge? Skinny front and back? Right now I'm running the Animal GLH 2.10 front and back. They aren't the most knobby but I primarily ride street so they grip the asphalt like glue. I don't think I'd go much bigger than 2.10 since I don't take many drops, but I'm thinking about getting a knobbier front tire. Discuss??

I like smooth tires and bigger front smaller back. I don't have too much of a preference.

My Machete front, Path k-lyte back feels like shit rolling.
Im buying a front 2.15 fly ruben so I hope that feels better. Anyone ever ride a front ruben in the back? Does it feel nasty or does it feel fairly smooth?

Animal glh 2.25 front would be sweet.
That would probably feel really nice.

I like quite Thin and knobby Tyres in the front, and a very thin medium tread Tyre in the Back. I'm currently running a 2.2 Dirt Monster and a 1.90 Aitken. My next setup will probably be a 2.125 Aitken Knobby and a 1.90 Aitken or a 1.85 Path.

Around 2.25 up front and mid-sized in the rear is what I prefer.

I've normally ran a knobbier front tire but I recently switched to something less knobbier and it still feels pretty good.

Currently running Eastern Fuquay Flyer (2.3) in front and Premium Refuse Resist (2.0) in the rear.

My favorite tire combo that I ever ran though was 2.25 front 2.2 rear.

2.25 front and rear is perfect.

I go 2.25 both front and back I hate having different sized tires
my current tires are both Aitken plyte, but Aitken in front and path in back feels good too

i like to have the same size tires, because i like my bike to feel balanced in weight.
I just bought a Tioga Powerblock 2.10 for my front end, going to get a tioga powerblock for my rear when i get the dough for it...
Cheap and lightweight, i don't ride street so the walls don't bother me..
I also got odyssey path rear at the moment, had it in the front. 2.10

I like matching tires.

For the back i'm not too picky, as long as it's 2.10 or bigger and has some tread like a GLH or something i'm fine with that. For the front i like something in the 2.25-2.35 area and for it to have a good all around tread, something like a demolition machete.

Im always on 2.25s front and back either FAFs or Aitkens!

Well said Blake

Fafs, aitkens, or lyras because they are all basically the same. Like if FAFs and aitkens had a baby, it'd be lyras.

I seek progression, not perfection.

Slick front and back i use to run 2.10 and 1.85 but i moved up to 2.4 and 2.2 because i wanted to add some weight, it didnt feel right being light.

I like my tires wide, and the same size. I ride Momentum 2.35s front and rear. it feels great to me. very stable and they grip walls pretty nice (i ride around 70 PSI) ive found that if i air em up more, they dont grip ANYTHING. out of all the tires ive owned, or ridden, i would recommend FAFs the most. Then Aitkens. Then Momentums

i like phat tires , currently on 2.25 glh front and back trying to switch over to 2 2.25 aitkens

4/24/2013 8:02 AM

Currently have 2.3 eclat control up front and a 2.25 WTP feelin but I preffered having a 2.25 aitken front and a 2.1 ASM back, makes the bike feel more put together imo.
