- Another tire one!! Best all year everything tire
I’m running 2.35 HansDampf up front and 2.25 Nobby Nick out back both are the Evo variants. Seems to be a very good combo for anything and everything. Not too draggy (running 35psi) and give good grip on all surfaces. I’m not one for chopping and changing tyres so these are fit and forget, at least till they wear out. A lot of Schwalbe haters out there, but they suit me on the rocks and soft loam of Derbyshire and the Peaks and even on the skippy and slippery pebbly surface of Cannock Chase. Better than Continental and Panaracer tyres I’ve had in the past, but I’ve found those to be alright too.Posted 4 years agocolournoiseSubscriber
Got Purgatorys on one bike from Spring/Summer/Autumn and stuck some Storms on the spare bike for muddy winter rides. Have actually found the Purgatorys better in the mud than the Storms – not quite as much outright grip but seem to clear easier and obviously roll better on the bits of trail that aren’t muddy.
Used to run a Rubber Queen / X King setup but for less money and weight can’t see me switching back from the Purgatorys any time soon as an all-year all-round tyre setup (might stick a Captain on the back for the summer if we get one).Posted 4 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
Or really good, depending on your POV
are great too
are made of cheese
by definition, going by user reviews, every tyre is both the biggest piece of cack ever that will shred to bits if it sees a stone, and all the knobs will fall off before you reach the end of the street AND also the best all round tyre ever made that will last for ages with excellent grip in most conditions. 😈
HD Pacestar/Trailstar on my list for next to try or something Maxxis (although 100% of my punctures have been Maxxis).Posted 4 years agofunkrodentSubscriber

Kenda nevegals have been brilliant for me. Cheap as well
+1 for the Nevegals. Came as stock on my Sight. They were one of the first on the list for an upgrade, but in fact they’ve been so good I’ve left them on. They roll really well, they grip on the wet rocks and roots of the Peaks and Calderdale and they’re good in the mud. Do seem to polarise opinion a bit though, but then which tyre doesn’t.. 😉Posted 4 years agonikkMember

I agree. For some reason, tyres especially bring out the very subjective points of view a lot of the time, especially regarding grip and suitability.
IMHO asking others to recommend a tyre is asking for a blunderbus of opinion. Everyone rides differently… some may be really fast ‘all mountain’ riders who love nothing more than a 3 hour blast on some techy fast stuff. They are gonna recommend and prefer a different type of tyre than someone who tends toward more XC rides and easier train centre stuff. So it is always a compromise, and each individual has to simply figure out where they want to make the compromise. The answer is not the same for everyone.
So your best best it to start at the mid placed tyres (Mountain Kings, Nobby Nicks etc) and take it from there… either buy something in that range and see what you feel (More grip? Less rolling resistance?), or if you think you know the answer, make your best guess.Posted 4 years ago
