Hi All,

Looking for tubie suggestions. The courses I race in Southern California are typically dry and fast. Lots of gofer-hole grass, loose dry dirt and bit of sand. Here's where I'm at tire wise:

Currently have glued up Grifo 32 and Tufo Flexus file tread 34. Prefer the feel of the Grifo in all but the bumpiest of grass courses. I think it's the combo of tread and sidewall feel that I like with the Grifo.

I've tried Dugast Typhoon 32, and old Pipistrello 34 with the side knobs but the rear sidewalls on each blew in a matter of a few short races.

I have one more wheelset ready for tires and am looking for a good, fast allrounder. Considering 34 Grifo, 32 Fango, 32 or 34 FMB something or other.

I'm on the bigger side at 180-190lbs. Think 34s may be good for my weight and the bumps but I like the quicker cornering feel of the 32s.  

Any suggestions?
