Tires

Anyone on here have experience with the Continental Mountain Kings? Cornering, shedding, wet/dry, etc? I'm not so much interested in roll resistance or pinch flats.

I'm looking for a replacement for my balding Hutchinson Mosquitos and the big let-down IRC Mythos. The Mythos might be great on bone dry hardpack but it sucks as soon as the soil gets even slightly damp. I like the soft compound and widely spaced tread on the Mosquitos, but they are discontinued. I want to replace them with something similarly light so I can continue to run Slime tubes without a noticeable weight penalty.

Thanks Cole. Saw that one, but those are real skinny. Not sure I'd like to go down from 2.0, but at the price, I might try them anyways. They had 12 left in stock a few weeks ago. I just found a deal on the Mountain Kings, and figured I'd see what the reviews are on them, since the Mosqiotos are not being made anymore.

I was impressed with the Panaracer Fire XC I ran in the rear when I had the 26er.
