- 2.25″ Maxxis Advantage as a front tyre for ‘dryer’ conditions – views please?
I have a set of Maxxis Crossmarks as my dry weather tyres at the moment, back seems ok (2.1) front is a 2.25 and TBH I find it a bit hairy at times, even worse if damp.
I’ve been looking at the Advantage 2.25 60a as an alternative for the front. fast rolling but with a bit more grip/bite
anybody use them and what do you think?
they will be run tubeless BTW

Already got high rollers on some other wheels as general everyday sort of tyre.42a front and 60a rear.
I was looking for a dry tyre combo. It’s just the crossmark on the front I have no confidence in.
My HR’s, which is 42a admittedly, is hardly fast rolling. i assume your referring to a 60a HR paulosoxo?Posted 8 years agoknott4meMember
run advantage 2.4 on the front & 2.25 both 60a really stick well in the dry not that bad on wet rock either tbh.
conering ability is immense compared to contis i have been using,pushing it in the bends the tyre sits nice & tight & doesn,t flex fold or give like either contis or panaracers tend to do.good value too ont tinter web.Posted 8 years agojamesMember
What rims do you have?
My XM719s aren’t wide enough really as they sit very round on the rims, especially bad at higher pressures as they never seem to be able to using the side tread
Running tubed is a bit more diffcult with normal tubes as most tubes, even continental ones that say they go upto 2.5″ are nowhere near the volume size when first inflating. They have to do a lot of stretching to fill the tyre. So you need loads of pressure to ward of pinch flats on stretched ‘normal’ tubesPosted 8 years ago
