- What Tyres for a Cotic Soul / 717 rims?
What tyres should I get for my Soul? I’ve been riding Michelin XL S front and rear, 2.0’s, and they keep getting pinch flats if I run them soft enough. I mainly ride Glentress and Innerleithen XC routes, with a bit of off piste thrown in…
I’ve got Mavic 717 rims, so thinking perhaps 2.2″ is the biggest I could go? I’m after grip, control but not too much weight as the rest of the bike is reasonably pimp.

Fire XC Pro 2.1s on the Singlespeed w/ 717s
Nobby Nic/Racing Ralph 2.1s on the bouncy one w/ 717s (although I did what a11y did with the front NN at Llandegla on the downhill after the masts…)
Prefer the Schwalbes – lighter, faster rolling (but not as grippy and come up smaller than 2.1 would suggest); but the Panaracers are really good value pricewise.
