Strengths:    Good hook up on hard-pack

Weaknesses:    hums on pavement

Bottom Line:   
Everyone says these are fast tires, but aren't that way too me. Had them converted to tubeless, hard to set up at first but when ready they do great. Great on hard-pack/grass an good on pavement if you get past the hum. What I do to get past that is I turn on my phone MP3 an put it in a jersey pocket.

Bottom Line:   
The small block eights came on my new bike and they make me feel real safe under speed in the tight turns. They grip well and are fast rolling tires.

Strengths:    Fast on dirt and road , Cushy without slowing you down too much .

Bottom Line:   
These tires came with my bike and so far they seem to do great most everywhere .As the summer comes to an end the trails are starting to get loose though . That and mud are the only thing that give these tires a hard time .

Small Block 8's 32 vs 35

I'm looking to get some Small Block Eights but I am not sure what size to get the 32s or the 35s. I own some Speedmax Pros in a 35 and am looking for a tire smaller than that. I've heard that the SB8's run small. Are the SB8s in 35 noticeably smaller than the Speedmax 35s? How narrow a ... Read More »
