    Help with tires

    Hey all.

    I need a new pair of tires to put on my not-yet-built Mavic 517's. I know, you need to know what kind of riding I do. Well, I do the basic riding to work and to the store, etc (concrete). I also do some freeriding, just getting into jumping so I don't do anything crazy in the form of jumping.

    So, I need a good all-terrain tire that are good for concrete and dirt. Please, if you have any good suggestions just let me know. Thanks.

    I had a set of WTB Mutano Raptor 2.4's on the xc ride. A good all around tread pattern and still light. Not good in mud tho.

    My favorite all around tire is the WTB Velociraptor, they are cheap, good knobs, good traction, moderate weight, and did I mention they are cheap?
