Hawk tires are great for everything except dirt of course. I can definitely vouch for them cause I've had them twice, with my second set currently right now from July brand new. You can ALWAYS trust Odyssey tires for being super thick. Haven't EVER had flats. *knock on wood* And they last forever if you pick the right kind, like regular versions and something like Aitkens.

I personally think it looks ugly as SHITE but hey, to each their own.

Odyssey hawk tires are good if you are using them for street, the can be a litle slippery in concrete park.

Massis tire are the s*it.. Never had a hawks tire so i can't say nothin bad.. The Maxxis grifter last forever & work great on street and park .as for dirt rear only.. Maxxis dth would be a good front tire. Just my opinion.. They are worth the extra money 4 yrs one flat

Aitkens and GLHs are the best tyres I've ran, and I ride mostly concrete park as well.

Hawks for life, I love mine soo much. I've had them for almost a year now and there still going strong I've only slipped out once on them at the park because I was leaning extremely far on a flat part but other than that they are awesome on park and street and look better than any other tire IMO. I'm gonna take them to the trails tomorrow for the first time I'm curious to see how they do since parts of the local trails are really smooth.

I highly suggest Primo WLTs.

Only had them for a few weeks but heres my experience so far...

Got tired of waiting inside for all the snow to melt, so rode through snow and mud the entire way to a VERY smoothly paved black top parking lot. By the time I got there, they were covered in road salt, snow, and mud. I wiped them off the best I could before throwing in a flatland session. I was completely amazed at how well these things gripped to the smooth ass (and even partially wet) asphalt regardless of how nasty and dirty they were. I did not slide out once my entire session. They gripped better in these poor conditions than my Fit FAF 2.25 / Animal GLH have ever gripped to ROUGH concrete on a sunny summers day.

I then took them to my local park which has been renowned (lately) for being slippery. I remember the time before I went with my FAF and GLH, I slid out left and right. These tires didnt move in any which way they were not intended to. Even during times that I SHOULD have slid out, they stayed very true.

The wrap around tread is GENIUS. I have gotten the sidewalls almost completely on the ground without falling/slipping out. They are thick aswell, the same thickness as my GLH.

Ive also gotten a ton of compliments for how they look. They are based off of the original Primo Wall tires which were considered the best tire available for a number of years.

I have not put them on dirt, and imagine they wouldn't be too good there, but for wood/concrete they are the best things I have ever felt. They also come in a very yellowish gum sidewall that would look sweet on your build.

I give them 10/10 for the first few weeks of owning them.

I would not buy any rims other than ODYSSEY. especially 7-KA's and HAZARDS, they are light and bomb proof.
personally I love the Premium Refuse Resist Folding. If had one I been using for about 3 years and as a spare after some replacment tires wore out. The Premium tires are super light, grippy and I think they look nice. The tread lasts forever on these things.
