surely not everyone has just put on 2.5/2.4 Minions and called it a day? i love those tires like everyone else but like to try quality tires at lower prices if possible.
MM 2.6 on the front of the Patrol is awesome. i had 2.6 Bonty SE4 out back but it wobbled prematurely and Trek warrantied the tire (thanks Trek), i'd have kept running it but in reality it was slightly too large and would leave rub marks so i've gone down to DHF 2.5 in back. i got an SE5 2.6 which will be the next front tire when the MM wears out which should be a while given how it's wearing.
MM 2.35 on the front of the Smuggler is fantastic. a bit smaller and lighter than Minion 2.5, endless grip. Purgatory grid 2.3 out back is great and well priced.
anyone run new Kendas? big Bonty's (2.6 available across the range in all wheel sizes)? Vittorias or Contis? has Conti fixed their hookless rim bead incompatible issue?
