Mud tire?

Recommended Posts

I have a ktm 200 mxc and I need a tire that works good in mud. I'll be trail riding 100% of the time. Any suggestions?

 Are you riding mud hole or wet, slippery, rocky, rooty, nasty, singletrack?  If it's the former, just tip you bike over and leave it there for the archiologists to find in a couple hundred years, in other words don't ride mud holes.  If it's the latter, I have been amazed with the Maxxis desert IT at 2-3 psi running the Nuetech Tubliss.

I am currently running the s12 front and rear. I found my new front tire, on the other hand I will be going back to shinko 524 120 for my rear.

I have been impressed by Kenda Southwick and Millville tires. The new compound on the Millville resists chunking pretty well in the event that you run over the occassional rock or tree root. Deep and open knoby pattern works great in loose mud, yet throws the mud out at low enough speed.

Running a s12 and have been very impressed when riding in mud/slick conditions. In hard pack not so much but for this time of year they rock!

On the back , the Dunlop 773 ,or starcross tires work good in sand , and mud. On the front I like the m12 , had a 756 Dunlop , but the m12 is much better.

Try the Kenda Sandmad, it's an AMA leagle paddle type tire. I have used it and it works great! It will be just fine on single track.
