Long time member who made a new account due to completely losing all information to prior account...anyway!




I will be needing new tires all around in the near future. I have the big 3 done (Barker's full system, PCV, FCI).

Im looking at the GBC XC Master tires.

I ride mostly trails that can vary from pure sand, to rocky terrain.

Pros/cons of going a size bigger all around?

Well the first mod I do is go to a 13 tooth in the front. We ride woods and would rather have the extra bottom end, hardly ever is there a chance to get even close to holding 5th wide open for more than a couple of seconds. Taller tires mean less bottom end.

Thanks for the reply.

The 22's would be for more ground clearance. The trails I am on are fairly open. Bottom end wouldn't be too big of an issue.

For trails: 23 in the front, 22 in the rear. 13/38 gearing.
