Neither....they kind of have different purposes. One is very high and excellent rolling speed while the other is stickier. I run a highroller in the front as it has some serious kickass traction for turning and I run a mobster on the back because it has a thick sidewall with tonnes of dig in traction and its sticky which is good for wood and rain. Most people I know run that setup IF they run maxxis
