Default Tire Choice

I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place when choosing tires. After looking for tires I have narrowed it down to 3 tires. The tires are 1.9 Rock Beasts, 1.9 Interco IROKs, or 1.9 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. I'm wondering what the best tire is based on experience?

I run Rock Beasts on my 1.9's and IROK's on my 2.2.
Most important thing is a soft compound and good foams! (Crawler Innovations)

The Baja Claws are good. They do two different sizes of 1.9's though. I run the taller 1.9's as below. Now from some angles they look a little too big to me....



So to make my self feel better I look at my 2.2 Baja Claws. Hehe.

The Rock Beasts are amazing in dirt and on the rocks! Super soft and grippy. I've been running mine for a few months and love them! Harley chose them for his Deadbolt build and also said in his video they are the best on the market right now.

I generally believe in picking whatever tire you think looks the best since everything in a super soft compound performs pretty well. The only area I noticed a difference when out trailing was in loose dirt and sand where a larger spaced lug tire had a distinct advantage. If you run into a lot of loose stuff when trailing, then go Rock Beasts or IROKs otherwise just pick the one you think looks the best.

I really like the MT Claws, for my area i run them backwards and the lugs seem to grab the rocks and help pull my rig forward. Overall i believe they are the best tire out there for my area.
