 Vee tires, as you can kinda tell from just looking at them, are literally plastic. Tried them once, never again.

 I use a Vee gravel grinder on the rear. I love it in the sand. I can get lose and throw roost. I can hold a line and thread a needle. Every tire has its place. You just have to be smart enough to chose the right tool for the job at hand.
$30 for 2 690gram tubeless 27.5 x 2.35 tires shipped to the house is a deal. Thanks Ebay.

 The Trax Fatty is a scam. I have the 26 x "3.0" model, and on a decently wide rim (38mm internal), it measures 2.4" tread and 2.7" casing. Terrible tread to casing width ratio, and no where near the advertised dimension.

 only decent + tires out right now is the DHF.... otherwise theres far better options in 2.6 and they work just as well on the wheels too

 Vee tires are dangerously slippery. I was tricked into buying some because of the ridiculously low Price. They've almost killed me several times. Never again.

 What did change on the T-Fatty ? Apart from the name I mean (it was called Trax Fatty last year). The tread looks identical to my current 29+ tires.

 The T-fatty replaces the Trax Fatty, eliminates the 82mm / 3.25 width option, the silica rubber option, and also the 120TPI casing.

There is a new Plus version of the Bulldozer model, available in 120TPI Silica though again no 3.25 width EXCEPT in a 29 Plus size.

I assume they're eliminating the 3.25 x 650B width option because aside from Rocky Mountain and Specialized, no brands have designed their Plus frames to clear such tires, and those brands spec Maxxis or their own brand tires so the sales they hoped for just aren't there. I myself think the Specialized plus tires are shit so I replaced the ones that came with my Fuse with Vee Trax Fatty 3.25s. Used the bike and tires exclusively for five months and got zero punctures that ended a ride, and only minor sidewall scuffing to be seen, and I ride a LOT of rocky trails which have cut Hutchinson, Schwalbe, Continental and Panaracer tires under me before.
