I don't even understand why the hell you're looking at tires when you're buying a complete bike.

yes it matters. if you get bald tires then their not going to be as good for dirt because they wont be diging into the gound as much and it'd be easier for you to slip out on turns. but bald tires would be good for park because they have a bigger surface area and will be more grippy.

therfore tires with bigger tread are gonna be better for dirt/street and a lot slippier for park.

if hes a 11 and riding a haro chances are when you say street its gonna mean more of jumping off curbs. i have a feeling that at 11 a mirra is gonna be to heavy to bunny hop high enough for ledges and stuff

Buy the cheapo tires where ever they are sold. Some last 20 days, many last months


[edit] I was drunk last night, thought you meant tubes. I run primo walls on front and back.

kind of a random question...

right now my set up is::::-->
Front: Maxxis Maxx Daddy 2.25"
Back: Primo Wall 2.1

my ideal set up would be the same back tire with a Primo Dirt Monster in the front...


but thats just me because i like to ride trails, and i dont ride enough park to have good park tires...

seems like the Primo Wall is very popular, and i have to say that since i switched to it from a maxxis holly roller...i like the thicker sidewalls and how its faster on my trails when there packed, and dry...

Blue Sidwalls are where it's at. Black is plain, boring, dull, drab. You got's to have style man.
