with the maxxis xc they seem to grip to much. the goldspeeds were all over the place(really loose in the corners and slid all over. The STI's push but not to much. you dont feel olike you are going to tip over in some of the corners. as far as grip i have ran these in the WORCS series and Quad X and had no issues with grip. tires can make or break you in a race so i wanted to try quite a few brands. the STI's are the best i've found.

Edit: other choices are:
-reg razr
-holeshot gncc
-razr xc

I usually ride in looser sand/harder desert type conditions with some wooded trails mixed in.

How are they at cornering, able to slide well but not slide out? They heavy? How do they handle looser sand vs hardpack?

Thanks so much for any help :)

Right now its a toss up on what I want to get, GBC race rex (or whatever they call them now), razr xc, keep the gbc xrex i just got, etc.
Sorry for the delay, been on vacation. The older STI tires had a harder rubber which made them work well on sandy tracks BUT the harder rubber would crack and break down. The newer STI tires use a slightly softer rubber which still works well and holds up a lot better. For the price they are tough to beat. I used them and loved them....but that's just me. If you still need tires, hit me up with a PM.

No worries Todd.

Im still debating what tire to get. When riding do the STI like to slide out too easily? I had a set of kenda klaws that slid out so easily I almost lost control many times.

I dont think they slid out too much, the MX measure a little smaller than the typical 18X10 but they worked fine for me.
