Hi, I'm Tony Zaldua from Budget Bicycles in Los Angeles, and I'm here to explain the best tires for wet conditions. Okay, so we have four mountain bike tires here and in the rain and when it's wet, in the dirt. Typically, you want to look for very aggressive tread patterns because in, when it's wet, you tend to slide more. There's, you know it's rocky and so, you would try to stray away from this pattern here because it's not so aggressive and it's not so deep. This would be a good choice here, since you can see it has a tall pattern and it will dig into the dirt better and then this is an okay choice. The taller, the better, basically, so, and you don't want your tires to wear, you don't want to wait until your tires wear down and then you won't have any traction so pay attention to that and then when you think it's a little bit low, change your tires and choose a higher and a more aggressive pattern. So, when you're rolling down a hill and you're turning, and you're carving, and your tires bite into the dirt, and you'll stay upright, and you'll enjoy your mountain bike ride better. Hi, this is Tony Zaldua from Budget Bicycles in Los Angeles, and I have just explained the best ways to choose a mountain bike tire for wet conditions on the road, and in the mountains.
