#!markdown I live in the Coastal BC and don't find you need to change tires summer to winter. At least not for trail riding. There are good tires that roll well and grip well through a variety of conditions. I've currently got a set of semi- slicks in the garage I need to wear out. I'm still trying to figure out whether they are worth the hassle of swapping tires or not vs. my go to year round rubber. I agree that a 2.4″ - 2.5″ tire on wider rims is an amazing combo. Despite having been an early adopter of fat bikes for snow/sand and 29+ for bikepacking I have not enjoyed plus rubber for trail riding nor really seen a compelling reason to go that wide for our local trails. It will be interesting to see what options come out in 2.5″ - 2.6″ widths in the next year or so as the Plus-Minus product ranges fill out. Yes the new thing is Plus-Minus. You heard it here first folks. 😉
