Help with tire choice
Getting back into riding after a nearly 12 year hiatus. When I still rode, I was completely ignorant to anything other then what came stock with my bike. I'm trying to expand into better equipment and the first thing I need to replace are the tires and tubes. I'm assuming that the tubes are all pretty generic, but I really don't know what kind of tires to get. I'm mostly going to be riding in the street and occasionally going into the dirt, but it's really a 90/10 kind of deal. The tires on it now say 20 x 1.75. I didn't know if i had to get the exact same size or if I could go up or down with that. I'm thinking I'd like to keep the price for all of it under $50, but things are always subject to change.
To be honest, I usually use FuzzBox's size for the majority of times. As for tires and the riding that you like to do, I would go with the maxxis line up with different tread for example a maxxis holy roller on back and a hoodlum up front so that way that you always have great traction even on dirt and the roll of the bike wouldn't be too bad on street. IRC Sirens front and back, or the Tioga comp III (the most imitated tire in the world) and a Tioga Comp x up front.
I'm riding a 2.1 in front and 1.85 in back from memory. Tried going up from my usual 85psi to 90 the other week, it didn't feel any more jarring like I thought it would, so I might try just skipping straight to 110 and see how that goes.
