which tyres should i buy for all mountain riding; maxxis advantage or high rollers? im not too worried about the suppossed drag on the high rollers cause my legs can take it.
thanks :)

    highroller's are grippier than advantages, but need to be leaned right over to get grip on corners, and aren't good in wet. i'd consider minions - 2.35 60a- grip however far you lean them, good in wet conditions and dry, grippier than advantages

    what kind of surface are they for? I think the advantage rolls a bit quicker but not as good in soft surfaces.

    The highroller is great tyre for aggressive style riders who lean right over. Otherwise the as suggested give the minion a go.

    +1 for minions or maybe try minion on the front, high roller on the rear
  • ive been riding high rollers for about year, and im not like a DH rider or anything, but ive never had any grip issues with them. and the rolling resisitance isnt too terrible either, seem like good all round tyres really, taken them in deep wet mud, and hardpack dry trails, and seem to work just fine,

    You could go Maxxpro HR on the front and exception Advantage on the back.

    Front grip, back end lack of drag & quick rolling

    The Minion's really good, if you want to go Maxxis. Highroller is great too mind.
