These tires are excellent. I can hook up in almost anything. Almost makes it too easy sometimes. Really nice mud tire. Performs well in dry, hard pack conditions, too.
They are heavy. Added quite of bit of weight, which was noticeable but not all in a bad way. Beefs up the bike nicely and offers a nice ride. The bike is not a quick as it was before, but that's a trade off I'm willing to live with to blast through the mud holes with ease.
I went with the 26's. The extra inch in width does throw up more mud around the wheel wells and on me.
