I have been "thinking" about trying a new set of tires. I currently run IRC Mythos XC kevlar 2.1's on my Fisher hard tail. I like the tires a lot and have had several sets already. They are light (565g), fast, and front/rear specific which I like but they are not very durable (sidewalls) and wear out quickly. If I switch to different tires, I want them to be bigger in volume than my current 2.1's to absorb a little more shock and possibly run a little less tire pressure (I run 38-40psi). They don't have to be as light, or roll as fast as the Mythos-but I want a little more volume with excellent traction in the corners and an all around better built tire. I would appreciate any opinions on the tires I have listed below or any others that you think would suit my needs. Thanks in advance.
I am looking at:
Panaracer Smoke/Dart combo 2.1 (front/rear specific)
Panaracer Fire XC PRO 2.1
WTB Weirwolf 2.1 (possibly paired up with a different rear tire-WTB MotoRaptor 2.1?)
WTB Velociraptor 2.1 (front/rear specific)
Panaracer Cinder ?
