Best WTB Tires for Enduro and Trail Riding Review

Best WTB Tires for Enduro and Trail Riding Review

Last winter I decided to try something different and picked up a pair of WTB Vigilante tires. Coming from Maxxis Minions, I was looking for a tire that would be good in the wet for the PNW winter. I love Maxxis tires, but it's all I've ridden, so I was looking to shake things up, test some new grip, and see what happens.

I ended up riding the Vigilantes for months, the side knobs were massive, and I liked how the tires rode over wet roots. What I started to notice was that I wasn’t getting enough traction in the rear and eventually opted to throw a WTB Judge on the rear. I ran that combo for quite a while. It’s still one of my favorite combos. If you haven’t seen the Judge, it’s massive, more on that tire later.

So I did it! I raced my first Enduro and it was ####ing rad!
