Destroyed the Maxxis' already and the tiogas just don't cut it. Went out looking for a tire that would work. The owner reccomended to try a Bontrager Big Earl out, so I took his word and got one to try. Got back and mounted it and went shuttling. Was fearing the worst, because the last time I tried a Bontrager Tire I didn't even make it a mile before ripping it off for another tire. With this tire my intuition was completely wrong. It was indeed a very grippy tire and light at that. My only complaint is that installing the first one was a handful. Was very well pleased overall with the tire which was on the front, so I went back and got the other one that was there for the rear took it out for shuttling again and the bike felt like it was running on rails. Overall I give the Big Earl 4.7/5.
