Pinkbike Poll: Will Your Next Bike be Downhill or All-Mountain?
I'm with you, I'm happy with both.. but if it came down to just one, for all of your riding, which one would make the cut? I think that's what they were getting after. Maybe they need a D) Both! option

Ha! Even if it was busy, that was too good to pass up. These are on 25.5mm hoops. There was a discussion about DHF 2.5" WT tires, weather they're a different pattern or not, and if they should only be ridden with 32-36mm rims as they say... To me, it seems like they have a broader tread pattern and they hook up a bit more than the standard DHF.. and being I have them on 25mm hoops, about 7mm narrower than recommended, without any issues. I think they're worth trying for more people than just those with wide hoops.

Ask Pinkbike: Wide Tires, Dirt Jumper for Whistler, and Trail Hardtails
@dirtpedaler: Yeah, man. Calipers are important to have. I like the mittutoyo ones the best. Great battery life and lightning refresh rate. Here are 2 pics. WT is about 5mm wider to the side knobs. Granted, as you get out to the sides of the tire volume, the increase in distance has them wrapping around the side more, for better traction when leaned over. It's hard to show in a photo, but visually you can see the difference when they are side by side. I have a lot more cornering confidence in the WT 2.5" vs the 2.3 DHF that was on there for all of 2 rides. I haven't spent any time on the new 2.5" DHF DH (no WT) yet to tell the difference. I'm with TeamRobot. There's no reason not to ride the WT tires on rims that are narrower than 30mm. Love mine on 25.5mm.

@TEAM-ROBOT: I just got a 2.5" DHF DH case for the downhill rig and set it side by side with the 2.5" DHF WT EXO that I have on the all mountain.. They actually do look different. The WT has a bit more volume and the knobs are further apart, so they wrap around the sides more.. The regular 2.5 DH case has a narrower tread pattern since the knobs aren't spaced as much.. I'd prefer running the WT tread on my DH bike too, if they made it.
