There is a dirt jump and roller park near me, starting to really get into it. I was looking at the maxxis maxx daddy, or the holy rollers. Which one would be the best, or are there better ones?

Would you recommend I switch them back to my street tyres if I wanted to do park one day, or is it not a huge deal using dirt tyres at a skatepark.

It depends on the dirt. A lot of dirt tracks are so hard packed that your park tires will work fine.

This.... I'll tell you that the holy rollers are really made for loose packed dirt. The don't roll well at all on pavement, the best tires I've ever run on dirt are the kenda K-rads or the tioga comp 3. There is a reason they have been around for so long. I used to ride alot of trails and street I used to keep a seperate front rim with a k rad on it and switch it out when I went to the trails. You can pretty much just run an aggresive street/ trail tire on the rear like a 2.25 fit FAF or a s and m mainline etc... My fit FAF 2.25 has also never slid in dirt. My FAF 2.10 on the rear can get a lil slippy in rain.

Grifters, rizers, or Aitkens. Aitkens are amazing. Grifters seem like more of a street tire, the rizer is great all around, and the Odyssey Aitkens are surprisingly good on the street too.

S&M Mainlines all day long.

Modern jumps don't require large knobby tires. Infact, if you showed up a bunch of times to our local public jumps with holly rollers or the like, someone would tell you to get different tires.

As others have said though, whatever you're using now will probably be fine.

Anything under 80 psi is just weak I find , slow sluggish , it makes me sad there’s tires that max out at 65
