Tire help : Front vs. Rear?

Hey everyone, wondering if people could help with this based on their experiences.

I have a Larsen TT UST tubeless 2.00 (I have UST Crossmax sl's) and a Michelin Comp s 1.95 UST tubeless on the way (never used them before).

I am currently running the larsen on the rear, however, I am thinking of running the comp s on the rear (less rolling resistance, "smaller", a bit lighter) and putting the Larsen on the front (better side knobs for cornering, larger volume, etc...) What do you think?

I ride a hardtail on light to moderate XC (mostly dry to slightly wet)

Any suggestions, recommendations welcome.

Thanks in advance,

K

Could work, could not work. Best way to find out is to try.

I know a few guys that run a similar set up and swear by it. The say the front tire is for bite and the back tire is for speed. So that combination should work well.

Try it. I just changed my setup to a Highroller front and a Minion F on the rear and its the best combo I've ever been on.
