Tyres for Berg and Bush

Another tyre question...

I am running Barzos/Barzo and Racing Ralphs/Rockets Rons will these tyres suffice or should I look for something burlier?

Stay with the Barzo's, or go Mezcal at the back.

I usually run Onza Canis 2.25" and Ibex 2.25" for similar sort of riding to B&B, but my set is just about worn. I am going to be replacing with Maxxis Ikon 2.35" and Maxxis Ardent Race 2.35" for Berg and Bush. I am a little worried about the Ardent Race not having quite enough grip for B&B, but I think it should be fine. 

 

If I were you I'd take the advice and replace the RR.

Thinking maybe a nobby nic front and barzo rear - both 2.3.

Just not sure on the barzo

Barzo is normally for Front and Saguaro for back, or do I have them mixed  :ph34r:  LOL...I might learn something here  :thumbup:

Rode last year with Vittoria Sanguaro's front and back, had no issues!

I've done two with Arisun Mount Graham's and they were fine. On Barzo's (front and rear) this year - looking forward to the additional grip!

No the grippiest as a front tyre. Brilliant for the back though...

I did it with Maxxis Ardent front and Crossmark rear last year.  Was happy with my choice.  Using the same setup this year.

 

I don't have experience with the Ardent race version, but looks like it would probably work well too...

I was really happy with Ron/Ralph and the 5000km they did over every terrain.
Changed to Barzo/Barzo because of cost and it feels like I'm towing a trailer up hills. Possible Barzo/Ikon for the race if I change.
