I gotta say I dig the monster rear tire and really like the look of full knobbies on our bikes.
I know you already told me but is your mudhugger a short or long one? Look like you have an extension on yours. I was planning on the "long rear mudhugger" and adding the "rear fathugger upgrade kit" if needed for width.
Yes i have had to extend the mud hugger, i used the standard extender, it is also the standard size mudhugger and its still letting a lot of mud get over my back
Go for the longer version, but the width will be fine for up to a 3" moto tyre. I had to widden mine with a heat gun for the monster truck 3.5 tyre on the rear lol.
Knobbles are great for me, on a 23 mile ride the other day i probably only rode 600m of road. I could never get away with using this bike on public roads without constantly checking over my shoulder to see whose watching.
I just weighed a few tyres i have... Approx rounded up weights as the digital scales i have are very sensative
3.00x17" CST C186 - 3kg
3.00x17" CST C183a - 3kg
3x24" mtb tyre Vuelta usa - 1.5kg
I imagine my vee rubber vrm308 3.5" tyre is 5kg though i have not weighed it.
