Answer: 
A tyre no narrower than 1.75" will be ideal; which will still offer the required tyre volume for the rim.

The suggestions below are ideal.

Answer: 
Well, folding bead tires can be folded. Wire beads, not so much. The bead is where the tire contacts the rim. Wire beads — formed by a thin steel wire — are old school. They’ve been in use for decades. The folding beads are usually made of Kevlar. Wire bead tires are usually heavier, but they’re also usually cheaper than folding beads.

Answer: 
Folding bead means that the tyre doesn't have a solid rim bead and is very flexable. Most folding bead tyres are lighter than there steel counterparts.

Answer: 
Traditionally tyres had a 'Wire Bead' around the edge of the tyre to hold it in place on the rim. This system was quite heavy compared to the newer Folding Beaded Tyres.

Folding Bead/Folding Tyres are lighter and offer a similar performance to Wire Tyres; this of course is a matter of preference and the weight difference is minimal, but major manufacturers are currently producing most designs in the 'Folding' Style; which are also necessary for running a 'Tubeless' setup where applicable.

Road tyre for Giant Trance

I currently have Schwalbe Hans Dampf Performance MTB Tyres on my Giant Trance. What would be a good tyre to use just if I was going for a spin on the road or some very light trails? Was thinking Schwalbe Land Cruiser 26" MTB Tyre.

Answer: 
For road or light trails anything with a more conservative tread pattern, or semi-slicks would be worth a look. Running a narrower tyre on the road will reduce rolling resistance as well.

I run a Minion DHF 2.35 Maxxpro 60A on the front of my full sus and totally trust it.Can I run the same on the rear? I did look at the Minion DHR but looks like it may drag due to the tread design (NOT the new DHR 2) and I could do with keeping what speed i do manage to generate! I swapped to my old Conti Rubber Queens this weekend and didn't like the experience.

Answer: 
I run Minion front & rear on my trail bike.
The 2.35 DHF Maxpro 60a is the tyre I'm running at the back, I run it in the opposite direction to the front.
very happy with it, hooks up nice and rolls well.
Your right about the rear version, it does drag more

I went tubeless this winter to help with punctures. While it has helped I am still getting something like a small cut or big enough hole that sealant won't stop it every 10 hours of riding or so. It is quite thorny and there is flint where I ride - the ridgeway mainly. Conti tyres are too tight to get on and off these rims. Just wondered if anyone could recommend a really tough tyre. I don't care how much it weighs, more the better really. I don't really care about the grip as long as it isn't a road tyre. Not looking to stop all punctures, obviously, just want the next purchase to be as durable as is possible. Have I missed a 2kg tyre with 2 layers of kevlar? Thanks for any help.

Presently this is fitted with road tyres 26 x 1.5

I want to change these for tyres with more grip and looking at 26 x 2.0 or 2.2 Will these fit the wheel?

Could you recommend a tyre, I am looking at around £20 or less.

Many thanks.

We have various options depending on which level of 'advanced grip' required.

Assuming these tyres are mainly going to be also used for road and possible some gravel tracks etc. there are a few options listed below.
