    The threads I’ve seen about MBS 7” 8” and 9” tires on Evolve boards are now a couple of years old and I’m looking for current information.

    I would like to get some MBS brand knobby tires and it looks like a couple of years ago the MBS model that Evolve riders were putting on their Evolve hubs were called Vines. The Vines have been discontinued by MBS for a couple of years now and they now have models called T2 and T3.

    So I’d like to get some knobby tires. And while I’m spending the money anyway, I may want to increase from the size of my current Evolve tire (7” all terrain) to an 8” or 9”. But I won’t do that if it means I am also going to have to change the gearing.

    So my questions are — 1. Will MBS T2 or T3 tires fit my Evolve 7” hubs? 2. If I go 8” or 9” will I also have to buy new gearing components? 3. For dirt trail riding do the knobbier tires make a substantial difference in traction?

    Thanks for your input!
