MTB Tyre suggestions ???

Hi all,
Yeah, I could join a MTB forum but thought I'd ask here first, given the amount of members who MTB.

Need to replace the Tioga Psycho TT 's (26' ers) on my bike....want something as aggressive and also as easy to fix flats as the gumwalls are....any suggestions ??

Thanks, checked them out, thats the sort of thing I'm looking for....something with a wide footprint with plenty of shoulder knobs

Where are you? I have some Maxxis Ignitors you could try. They're not the fastest rolling tyres around but grip pretty well. They've only been used a couple of times.

Maxxis Minions have good grip imho, if you're after something beefy. They're heavy and they roll slowly, but that might not be an issue. There are XC versions too now if you don't want to run the heavy DH versions. There are a few compounds available - I suggest the 60A for the rear and the 3C for the front for general riding. There's a front and rear version too - the DHF works well both front and back. The DHR is designed to run as a rear but rolls slower; it does let go easier than the DHF and has more straight-line grip so I prefer it on the back over the DHF. I've been running 26x2.5" but there are other sizes to choose from.
