Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The 2.25 came as rear tire on Santa Cruz 5010, ran tubeless on WTB ST 23 mm rim. Worked well for climbing and light descending. For anything more aggressive, even railing berms and small jumps it's totally squirmy at anything under 35psi, soft sidewalls roll over easily. took it to Big Bear (nothing gnar) and burped it hopping a 1ft roller (at 30 psi) and then tore a hole at a side lug at pretty low speed. I ordered a High Roller II dual compound to run instead, which I have on the front and has worked great.
