Only one I regret buying was a ebike specific Swalbe on front. It will go on back when I need one there. I'm gradually taking it easier as I get older so a lot of what I read on here is irrelevant to me. Or maybe after 37 years offroad cycling I am just really good at itThere’s nothing like a tyre thread to get people going!
Ultimately, like so many things in biking (and life!), do and use what works for you, for where and how you ride.
I’d never bin a tyre that came on a bike without at least giving them a go, but I know what works for me on my trails and that’s all there is to it really.
I don’t expect to project my favoured tyres onto anybody, and I don’t expect people to tell me I purchased the wrong tyres or I’m a crap rider either. Even though I might be!
A ride on a crap tyre is still a ride, so all good, as long as you keep your teeth and bones intact.
