Rated 5 out of 5 by bendajamin230 Good tyre
Less than most tyres in terms of price and I would say they do a good job have used these for a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spud71 The Swiss-Army knife of all tires?
I've used the Aramid folding bead Fire XC Pros for 15 years now on many different bikes, and it seems to be the closet thing to being a ‘Holy Grail’ tire for my riding style.
The stepped knobs and tread design are both brilliant in a variety of terrain and surfaces, save for sticky mud where they tend to pack up a bit. They may appear to be a bit on the skinny side for more serious off roading, but they are surprisingly capable and very durable. Having a silica compound they roll relatively fast, and are extremely puncture resistant with the ASB chafer. I’ve never pinch-flatted when rolling on Fire XC’s with ASB.
I commute on them in the winter and have done a few tours on Fire XC’s, the last one with 28-pounds of gear on board. They lap up hard-pack gravel and pavement without evaporating quickly like my only-ever set of Kenda Nevegals did. Fire XC’s are truly a top-drawer bit of kit.
Thankfully, Panaracer still makes most of its tires in Japan - where quality does reign supreme.

Get the psi right for the conditions and they perform excellent - I've been using xc fire's since 2006 and would not use any other tyre

Rated 5 out of 5 by Balbus Can't go wrong
Tyres are very personal, but I have used these for years and had no major problems. they are pretty light weight, roll well on tarmac/hard pack, grip as well as anything on slippery roots and rocks and shed mud pretty well. Good all-rounder at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTB247 Panaracer Fire XC Folding Tyre
I've been using these tyres for months now. They've been used off-road, on-road, in mud, sand, dirt - any condition you can think of. They have never let me down once. They are a solid all round tyre for a very good price and are still going strong after 600 mile with plenty of grip left. Would buy again without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Photodrug My favorite tires
My first Panaracer Fire XC Pro was bought in 2001. I like to experiment and have experienced many types of different tires and now I'm still have a pair of Fire XC Pro on my bike. They are just what I like. Also "Made in Japan" gives +100 to karma =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tomaszek Excellent off tyre that rolls well on a road too
These tyres are excellent. Great quality as they are made in Japan. They are serving me very well in a variety of terrains. From mud and sand to sharp stone gardens of tidal beaches. Excellent grip on single tracks. And as if it wasn't enough it's server very well on the roads when you are on short spin or need to commute from one off road venue to another.

In the picture the tire has two blue lines, this is what I want. When I look up the tires online elsewhere they are shown with a blue outer line and a red inner line. I just wanted to be sure that they will look like they do in the picture with two blue lines / stripes. Thanks
