    Most good mud tires are narrow, so I'm guessing decent choices will fit no problems on your Scalpel. I usually keep regular knobbies for mud riding but have heard great things about the Panaracer TrailRaker and the Schwalbe Black Shark Mud... might look in the Wheels and tires forum, there has been many threads discussing good mudders.

    Continental's classic mud tire has been brought back to production: the 1.5 Cross-Country tire works very well in mud, they also have the 1.9 Edge, should work great too and is less skinny...

    Bontrager's Mud X looks okay, it doesn't look like a pure mud tire though (can be a good thing, can be bad) and is Tubeless Ready if you prefer not using tubes...

    Is there any equivalent today to the tyres I gew up on:

    Specialised ground control front and fisher fattraxx rear?

    I swear buying tyres was easier 20 years ago - that ground control was like glue in the corners.

    Does specialised make an equivalent today?

    Thanks

    I run a Conti Survival in the back and a Conti Explorer in front.
    Best combo so far for mud for me.
