 My buddy runs walls... those things wear like iron...they don't roll bad and they scuff like no tomorrow... they take 120psi no problem.

I dunno I thought they were alright when I rode them??? There really heavy tires though.

You'll definitely see an improvement with those tires over what you have now.

Would those be my first choice?? No I like freq G's but I would run walls there not bad IMHO.

primo wall tires are grate if you constantly run over broken glass or thumbtacks or jaged pieces of metal,   hahaha

seriously - I had a set of 2.1 in red,   not my style,  verry HEAVY duty.
they will last a while,  and scuff good,   spin ok,   seem kinda mushy tho.
I rode them at 95/100 psi.   never tried 120 on em.

Primo Walls are still my personal favorite. Yes, they are heavy. They ride great though. Nothing is better for scuffing. Tread lasts a long time and you can do 120psi easy. I have been pushing Primo to do a kevlar bead version. That would be nice.

a few years back, a primo wall on the rear and v-monster on the front was THE setup for riders that rode street park trails.

things have changed and tires have gone light weight, these are heavy duty which means there're a LOT of life on them. the performance of the tire is good and consistent throughout its life as well.

i presume you started no long ago. go with these, save the replacement money on tires to spend on other parts which you'll need to spend on. you'll eventually get to a point that other tires would suit you more and you will kinda just 'know'. by then you'll have some more tricks and better bike parts already. go for them.

I agree I'd like to try walls in a 1.75 because I think they would scuff nice for BW trix.
