This is good beta coming hot on the heels of debate I had on Shore worthy tires this week. After a winter of riding my rear wheel was haggard so I stuck on a Maxxis Minion DHR 3C DD _Maxx Terra_. With it being early season and few options in the local shop I put on the Maxx Terror that I usually wouldn't run until the blown out days of Summer.  Skeptical but with few options, I pumped it  25psi and five minutes into my next ride I can confirm that it was Maxx-Terrifying in the current tweener-season of wet rock and greasy AF roots. Following a few near death experiences, I peeled the tire off a few days later and replaced it with the proven Maxxis Minion DHR  3C DD _Maxx Grip - Simply swapping compounds the experience was It was night and day.On the same trail and in similar conditions,  I instantly felt improved performance and predictability. In my mind, it's worth burning through the cost of an extra tire or 2 per season to get confidence back on the steep and slick green stuff.
