Good eye..hard to toss a decent enough OEM maxxis tire (at least when it's on the rear..)

Lol. He’s 6’2” and one of the fastest guys around here. I know he had to grab a dd casing because the exo it came with wouldn’t make it down his first decent. But yeah he obviously didn’t put much effort into that.

I'm entirely messing with you, I could care less about the actual logos. of all the places to be nit picky about a bike, this is the pinnacle of nit-pickiness.

Tire logos should be opposite the valve to ensure proper balance of the wheel.

The real question is whats heaver? the MAXXIS logo? or the ASSEGAI logo and alphabet soup after it?

Nah, that's what clumps of old semi dried up sealant are for.

He actually got the oem one for the rear because the white lettering is lighter than the yellow. It’s an industry secret that maxxis yellow is really heavy. That’s why they sell bikes with oem white logos. So when customers make the shop put a bike on the scale it ways much less.

You know that actually wouldn't surprise me as it seems the white lettered tires seem to tear/puncture easier

I was just being silly, like the weight of the yellow dye. But you never know.

The white lettered tires go flat easier. Seen it happen many many times. Cheaper OEM quality to squeeze more profit out on the complete bike sale is my guess.
If you have white go yellow ASAP or enjoy the walk/flat fixing.

Watch out where the huskies go and don't you eat that yellow snow.
