    Round rubbery ones.

    Cue the debate.
    No Maxxis
    Maybe Comtinental.
    Panaracers are best.

    I don't do smileys.

    I like pirelli

    The ignitors have a few fans on here and I used to run the continental vertical which is very similar but cheaper. Where you are riding sounds similar to my local spot and found that type of tyre worked well but when you start to push the tyre elsewhere it ran out of grip.

    My current top tyres are the maxxis minion which is draggy but grips so well or the Nobby Nic, but they aren't cheap (are some good deals around atm)
