tire question


I used the Arrow prime wide for quite a while on my trials uni. These are
the differences, in my opinion, between it and the Gazz 24x3".

-slightly lighter, slightly narrower and slightly less volume -rounder top
profile is better than the Gazz for cornering, especially on pavement. -no
noticeable difference in tread self cleaning or tread wear. -no noticeable
difference in sidewalls. Actually I had a bit of trouble with it shifting
on the rim, causing it to rub on the zero clearance fork that I was using.
-higher volume gazz seemed more stable on rough descents.

All in all I think that this is arguably a better tire than the gazz for
people doing all round cross country, trials and downhill on their MUni,
but the Gazz is still best for hard core downhill.
