I ride a Felt hard tail carbon 29. It has small block 8's (Kenda). The riding conditions are getting wet here (Oregon Cascades) and the small blocks have been washing out. The Continental Race King looks like a good wet weather riding pattern. Is it?
Also, some folks that I ride with will run a thinner tire on the rear. Would it be logical to run the 2.2 in the front and a 2.0 in the rear?

The Race King is an awesome all around 29er tire. I ran them on a Felt Nine Team all summer. If you are looking for a tire for lots of wet trail conditions I would strongly recommend the Mtn King 29er tires. They handle wet/muddy conditions much better - The Race King can pack up w/ mud pretty quick. For dry to slightly moist and tacky the RK cannot be beat. Either way the 2.2s front and back. The 2.0s are super skinny
