  • If you wanted something like a 2.4 3c maxxterra DHR2 but a bit grippier…

    Would you get a 2.6 3c maxxterra DHR2, or would you get a 2.4 3C maxxgrip DHR2?

    Girth, or stickyness?

    Maxxgrip for rock, 2.6 for dirt.

    I had the same question for a front tyre and the answer turned out to be a michelin wild enduro magic x.

    Cheaper, gripper and yet to delaminate/deform unlike 3 maxxis tyres this year.


    My feeling is that a wider tyre a wider tyre will offer more grip in most scenarios, not only because of wider tread, buy also from slightly lower tyre pressures and carcass deformation.

    But the Maxxgrip would be my choice for high-speed, and on slippery surfaces like wet rocks and roots.

    Cool, ta folks, thats’ more or less my thinking- I do like a big tyre but I’m going to try the maxxgrip. Cheers!

    Maxxgrip is definitely grippier than a wider tyre. Wild Enduro definitely doesn’t have as much grip as the DHR, and the sidewalls are a little bit too flexible for my liking (note that Sam Hill has been running the DH22 all season rather than the Wild Enduro).
