Probably been asked before but any "major" differences between DD vs dh casing? I'm running right now dhf DD front on a wao union rim and a dissector dh on a wao strife rim but tired of short maxx grip life and no Maxx terra on dh casing, so thinking a DD rear. I'm mostly park jump guy with occasional tech stuff but never race. I'm only 160lbs fully geared and my dh bike is way lighter than usual. Any thoughts?

Side walls are similar.
But the dd is thinner under the tread.

Thanks I see commencal furious come stock with DD front and rear so I'll give the aggressor a go when my dissector is worn.

Would I feel differences in support for a rear tire between DD and DH casing?

There’s a minion DHF available in DH casing/ dual compound you might want to try.

You can run 1-2 psi less with a dh case and it feels like slower rebound.
But it's a pretty minor change compared to the feel between an exo and a dh

Or single 60a compound. Rolls fast. Great on the back in summer.

After trying both I dint see a difference in support. But will never use maxx grip on rear ever again, wear out way too fast and slow rolling. Aggressor DD feels great and will try a old griffin 2.3 maxx terra DD just for fun. Seems a great hardpack tire.

I feel like the difference DD vs DH casing is pretty minimal, but important at those higher margins of performance and puncture protection. If you don't like maxxgripp in the rear then I would try DD.

I prefer maxxgrip/DH casing in the rear but definitely pay a penalty with weight and longevity.

I ask this out of ignorance... between the DD and DH, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of additional puncture resistance, just better sidewall support. Wouldn't running an insert give better sidewall support to the DD and open up the compound options you are looking for?
