      Just need some suggestions.  I’m riding a fully rigid mountain bike and I have two sets of tires to choose from.  I have a set of renegades 2.30 and a set of racing Ralph’s. The front racing Ralph is a 2.10 and the rear is a 2.25.  Any suggestions and to what’s better?

      If you’re running fully rigid, I would go with the widest tire you can fit. The extra volume will help take the edge off (a little bit).

      The tread patterns on both are pretty comparable.

      Completely agree, a wider tire will give you a better ride.

      +1 on the widest tires. Convert to tubeless and then you can run even lower pressure for increased ride comfort

      I agree with others here on running wider tires to get the most out of the suspension benefits of a tire….

      However, considering you are riding fully rigid, maybe suspension is not a concern….If speed is your thing, & you don’t care about suspension, & your trails are not technical, and relatively packed…Then in your case maybe you do want the skinny tites.
