Ok guys,my tire exploded a few days ago.it had a hole from too much drifting.it was a stock rant tire.i need a tire or two different ones on front and back that will have good grip and will withstand my drifting.also one or two that will have lots of grip but skinny enough so i can go fast.preferably one that has a white wall.my friend told me to get a fit Faf tire but i don't know if its a good one for my needs.and i can't stop drifting cause that's not an option.if you guys can also tell me sizes that would be great too.

Tires are not for drifting. theyre expensive , your parents pay for them, respect it.

Fit FAF's 2.25s will never let you down and my Chase Hawks are holding up pretty good so far. I like to slide to sometimes just not constantly unless its slippery concrete then I'm sliding all day smile

I'm confused ,is it the tires on this website? http://www.odysseybmx.com/catalog/tires/hawk-tire/ they don't look like they have much grip.do they actually have good grip?sorry so many questions but i ride really fast and i don't want to fall down because my tire slipped.does it hold good in the slippery concrete? Thanks

Slippery concrete I would definitely say no i tried it the other day, but then you would slip on any tire if its slippery. They grip great on street. I've never taken them to the park but I imagine they would be good since Chase Hawk runs a shit ton of park and Dungan runs them and he rides park.

I take that back unless you ran low pressure pretty much any tire with like at least 70 psi is gonna slip out pretty easy on slippery concrete.

You have them On front and rear or only on one side?

I have them 2.4's front and rear and I've only slipped twice: once I was carving on a painted speed bump ( obviously I was asking for it lol), and yesterday I was at a school and the concrete was insanely slippery but that's not the tires fault I mean it was almost like the shit was waxed lol. I would get them If you only ride street and park. But FAF's 2.25s are awesome if you ride dirt too.

Do you think it'll work out if i have a faf tire 2.25 in the front for stability?Lol so many questions but i want the best bike for performance and showing off lmaoo

It depends on what you ride I don't think it will make a difference if you ride street both tires are good from my experience but if you think your gonna ride dirt too then just get FAF's 2.25 and make sure its the 2.25 because it has a more aggressive tread and lasts longer.
