These are the tires I use on my both my hard tail, and full suspension TREK bikes. The Panaracers are reasonably priced, and provide great traction and durability. As soon as the stock tires on my two bikes were replaced by the Panaracers, the traction gained going uphill on loose dirt and rocks was immediately noticeable. Additionally, these tires come in a red, yellow or blue trim, which really adds some color to my black bike.
A bit hard to get on and off the rim when changing a flat, but once you are up and riding again, its well worth the struggle!
I would definitely recommend the Panaracer Fire XC Pro tire. Great tire for the money.
