    Which would you take?

    Given the choice between a Panaracer Dart or a Bontrager Jones AC, which would you take, given that the type of riding you do is XC in pretty much all conditions (loose, hardpack, the occaisional mud, etc.)?

    I use the panaracer dart and smoke, they work fine. I have't tried the Bontragers.

    Wanngetgood, panaracer's been around for years. A decade and then some I believe, maybe two.

    I don't know many wheel brands, so... I just went with the one that I have heard of.

    Panaracer Smoke and Dart. They're the tried-and-true old school tires. They simply work great!

    Now is this based on Brand preference or by actual experience?

    Bontrager tires are mediocre. I have a spare pair of jones acx though. I think ill use them when the tires I have now fade.

    The Panaracers have been around for years and years. One of the stadards that other tire designs. They are kinda like the WTB Velociraptors. Good tires, overall good tread pattern and front/back specific.
