I just got back into riding after a little over a year break. I need a new front tire, right now I have a odyssey Ross. And I want something that is faster but has plenty of grip for the streets. What is the recommended front street tire right now?

There are a lot of good tires out there and I suggest you choose out of these (and maybe more) which you like best.

Shadow Valor tires. Best fucking tire. Unless you have a small dick and a weight weenie. They last ages and roll and grip so well. I loved every minute of them and Eventually i will snag more. I LOVE this tire. Only downside is they're 3$ more than most tires, which isn't a big difference.

All the new Odyssey Tires They are all pretty low profile. The Boss is the most agressive, the Dugan is in between, and the Chase Hawk is the slippery-est. I run the Dugans. 2.4 front 2.3 rear. I like how the sizes are TRUE to what they say on the tire. No 2.2 but actually 2.57 haha. They're super fast and make you feel like you're riding a motorcycle. Especially if you do 2 2.4s. Which should fit most frames. It would easily clear the back end of my Funday. They also last a long time and are rather thick. Super tough tire. I love this one too. Little slippery-er than the Valors really.

there are a few others I don't bother listing here, but those are my absolute favorites that I highly recommend.

Cult makes nice slicks too.

I have been a big fan of odyssey tires, because how long they last and the grip they provide. The Chase hawk tire looks really good, just not sure how well it does in the street.

For a street park use the shadow valor seems really good, the bsd donnasqueak´s is also treating me well.
If you ride everything and also dirt, the flybikes tyre is a good choice

I second the shadow valors. My fav. so far.

I had a set of hawks before and they are more slippery but still pretty good

Knobby Aitken. Super fast and grippy on everything, plus it's light. But if you're doing a ton of grinds, I'd get the street Aitken. Either of them grip great and will last a long fucking time, I rode my street Aitken for like 3 years and I'm pretty sure someone is still riding it.

Bsd's are feeling nice currently, very good grip but not super knobby

I just got off a set of Fly Rubens, I ride dirt and street and they handle good in both. Not to much rolling resistance either.
