Given these tire options...

My new Trek Superfly 100 AL Pro should be arriving tomorrow. It comes stock with Bontrager Race Lite Tubeless Ready wheels and Bontrager 29-1 Team Issue 29x2.20 tires. I plan to run tubeless with the Bontrager rim strips & valves with Stan's sealant.

In addition to the tires that come with the bike, I also have the following...

29x2.15" Hutchinson Toro Tubeless Ready Hardskin
29x2.1" Maxxis Ignitor (Came stock on my 2010 Kona Unit. Not EXO or TR version.)
29x2.55" WTB Weirwolf LT
29x2.35" Panaracer Rampage (Standard version. Not UST, PR or SC.)

I ride typical midwestern singletrack, which includes sharp rock & roots, as well as some mud and lots of leaf cover this time of year.

What would you run front & rear given these options?

I like wider up front so maybe the WTB or Panaracer. Bontrager are hard find in the aftermarket due to price. but they have always been a favorite tire of mine.

Thanks. I added one more option, which I had forgotten about.
