I personally like the m59 much better. I feel it grips better and deflects less

The GT216AAHB has never professional negative review...is a excellent tire both front and rear. As Anvil has pointed out, 2 rides does that to his tire, I can point to 30/40hrs of use on the same tire with outstanding results... It's all on how you ride...

I ran the FATTY. Only reason I still don't is because they became unavailable in Canada. Always ran a tube in the front and never had a flat... Mousse in the rear...

So you have tried both than? How is the m59 in mud

M59 front , m5b rear is my go to setup in the PNW. Haven't tried the GT so i cannot comment on that. Been super muddy this year and the 59 as always has been doing its job great.

The 216aa is a very good tire performance and wear wise. The Anvil's rear must have been a gummy to wear like that in two rides. The 216 fronts aren't the gummy compound.

Goldentyre tires are amazing! just a little pricey.
for rocky terrain, the Fatty is the go-to.
i call bullshit on Anvil's 2 ride wear on that rear. sorry buddy, but my front is still good after 8 gnar rides. i can't speak on behalf of the rear Goldentyre. Anvil knows to use an M5B but she likes the drama.

Golden tyre lasted two rides for me IMG_3330.JPG

What bike is this on?  2T or 4T?  Is that the regular compound or X compound?

The local Golden Tyre distributor told me the 216 rear was only meant for 2T bikes.

There is a Golden Tyre guy in Kelowna or Kamloops.  I got mine from him in Calgary 6 months ago and a buddy just got a set last week.

It used to be Mike, but Mike doesn't do it anymore and switched over to Gibson Tyres. Maybe some old stock or a different guy but I haven't heard anything..

Just discovered someone in Calgary is importing GoldenTyre. I messaged him so it will be interesting to see what I hear back..

Hey@Monk, what's your terrain like up there? Roots, rocks, mud? Just wondering because I'm thinking of picking one up for an upcoming race and haven't paid much attention to woods tires recently.

I don't know Mike.  The guy who I got my tires off is named Andrew.  He was in Calgary and just moved down to BC recently.
