Interested to hear how the Aggressor goes paired with the Assegai on the front too. This is probably front runner for next tire combo. Keen to run a faster rolling rear but worried it’ll be a little unbalanced with masses of grip out front and comparatively little on the back.

I have the Minon DHF 2.5 MaxGrip up front and an Aggressor 2.5 in the rear.
Only used this combo a few weeks and in the dry (loose over hard pack) but the rear always let's go first which is a characteristic of the combo I like.
The DHF MaxGrip has blown every other tyre I have used up front till now out of the water.....MaxGrip compound is the key.
The Aggressor rolls nice and smoothly out back.

I don't mind the Wild AM as a rear tyre - fast rolling and grippy enough for the rear, but front I found they were great - until suddenly they weren't (usually when hitting a patch of loose sand). That being said I don't get along with Assegais either (which most folk seem to reckon are the ultimate in grip), there's just something about that big channel with DHF's that just works for me in the majority of conditions.

Tried the Michelin Wild AM on the Intense.

On dry dusty crap, my god do they hold on. Roll awesome too.

I find the sidewalls a bit flimsy. The Wild Enduros are better.

I roll them on the alpine, although the front on that seems to be suffering inflation issues....

I've been running the Wild AM on the front for a year now, I really can't fault it. Had the Force AM on the back as a really fast rolling tyre, worn out now after about 1000km. Wild AM still looks like new. Funnily enough on the big G15 the Force worked fine due to the length of the bike, but on my new bike with shorter chainstays I notice it lacks grip.

I think I might try the Wild AM front and rear, dry and dusty crap pretty much sums up the tracks up here in SEQ!

Just fitted an EXO Dissector to try. Used the DH version at BawBaw and Buller and worked well, so going to try the WT version on my trailbike wheelset.

Front or rear? I am interested to try one as a front when my current assegai wears out.

I've run both Wild AM front/Wild AM rear and Wild AM front/Force AM rear.

The bike is definetely slower on the double Wild setup, not hugely so but I found it noticeable.

Rear. Running Assegai DH on the front . The soft DH Dissector is showing a bit of wear after 3 shuttle days but looks like it will easily do much more. Mostly taken all the braking edges off.

I haven't compared them on the trail, so don't expect an in depth comparison. But here's a set of 2.4 onza ibex/citius and a set of 2.5 maxxis dhf/dhr. The onzas are a good few mm wider than the maxxis, and have a very similar tread pattern happening.

The dhf/dhr combo is a go to for a lot of people, well worth a look at onza's take on them if the price is comparable...

(The Maxxis are on the wider rim too btw)
