I've been running Maxxis Highrollers and Minions ever since I started Mountain Biking. This winter I wanted to try something different and ride something that was better suited for wet weather.
After doing some research, I pulled the trigger and picked up some WTB Vigilantes. Full disclosure I was able to get these tires at an industry discount which made the leap of faith that much easier. Money aside the reason I chose the Viginalte was for its huge Side Knobs and generous tread spacing.
