I'm in love with the tire setup that came on my Stumpy Evo. 2.3" Butcher Control front tire (730g) and 2.2" Purgatory Control rear tire (670g). It feels as if I'm on a DH tire setup.
On my rocky mountain element 50 I have a maxxis aspen up front and a maxxis crossmark on the back both 2.25 I have no complaints
I just took another look at the Butcher Control and saw its ramped center nobs and it got even more interesting. Your whole setup is! The Purgatory looks like perfect as a rear.

Cheers for the help so far!
