Based on this MTBR thread I have been through a series of trades, earlier this year and just recently.
Just recently I managed to trade two used Rocket Rons for two lightly used Maxxis IKON EXOs. I've got another trade going between my new Racing Ralph Snakeskin and a new Maxxis IKON EXO. So at the end of it I should need to buy only one new tire.
Here's the other 29er tires I have available for trade, let me know if you want to make a deal. I'm willing to trade for other parts as well.
Schwalbe Racing Ralph Snakeskin, 2.25
WTB Vulpine 2.1, C9
Duro Miner 29er, C9
(2) Schwalbe Rocket Ron 2.2 TR 2011 29er, C8
