Anyone used Tioga Factory XC extremes? Look light enough for a 2.1.

Joe Murray Equilibrium leading the way with a Joe Murray Propulsion bringing up the rear. Came with the bike but there I've had no need to change them, they're good tyres.
Just noticed the other day that the front one is fatter than the back one, dunno why this is but I'm sure there is a reason.

Makes sense, why do some tyres (like my Joe Murrays) have a square kind of tread but some are more angular pointing forward? And also is there and noticeable peformance difference betwen a set of 2.2s and a set of 2.1s?
