Get some Holy Rollers they are awesome for street and dirt they make a 26 x 2.4 which should be plenty big

Transition - TOP
Specialized- Demo 8 II
Santa Cruz- Butcher

Still a hack.

Oh yeah if you plan on riding anything other then street, particularly anything wet, dont bother with hookworms, in wet conditions off road they are useless!

Arrow launches are the way to go… they seem to grip everything(far better than hookworms in nearly every situation)… tough ass tire too. Holy roller=lots of torn sidewalls

Arrows launches are a solid feeling urban tire, they are beefy but not rediculously heavy, two ply hookworms are probably the burliest you will fine, you could try a fro intense zero if you was the beefiest possible.

I had hookworms for Urban, didn't hit anything I would end up on grass or dirt. Now I'm running DMR Moto the treads much the same as Krad but the rubbers better and I have no problems in dirt or grass. Theyre 2.2 lbs lighter than Hookworms on a 26 " pair as well.

Edit - DMR Moto are 2.4 wide

ha ha, I'm just livin my life man.
