I own a CUBE Acid MTB, which is mainly aimed at entry-level/XC riding, although (since this is the only bike I own righ now) I do ride it in somewhat more aggressive trails, almost enduro.
The bike has been running fine but I feel I could benefit from a new pair of tires, to increase grip/traction and to scare away most puncture and slipping thoughts, something that could withstand roots and non-plain terrain.
Also I'm still running tubes since my rims aren't tubeless-ready by default.
My bike has ETRTO 622x20 rims, with Schwalbe Smart Sam 2.25" front/back.
My understanding is that most rugged tires are 2.30" and up, while 2.25" tires are mostly a XC thing nowadays.
What tires could I mount on my bike?
Is tubeless achievable on my setup?
If yes, I won't convert right away, so a tire that could work on both setups would be great.
