    29" tire for sticky mud

    I like continental MK1 - it works in sticky mud pretty well but it was replaced with MK2.
    Mk2 like scwable NN not so good in wet and muddy condition.
    So i need advice for 29" trail tire with good grip and mud shedding.

    Maxxis HR2 does well in the wet and works pretty good in softer mud, not so sure about how sticky your mud is or it's composition. Another option is the Bontrager Mud or CST Ouster.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    In autumn it often rains and so just after rain we have hardpack with thin thin layer of mud. It's very slippery and even mud tyres don't have good traction. In second half of autumn we have some hardpack with sticky mud, soft mud and water(temperature to low and water don't have time to evaporate). Almost same in fist half of spring but no hard pack only all kind of mud and water.
    There is a lot of clay and soil so half dried mud is very sticky(we call it the plasticine).

    True mud tires don't roll well and don't have good traction with hard pack, so i try to find tire about 2-2,2" width with low and rare knobs - best for this conditions.

    Maxxis hr2, dhf, dhr, Scwable NN don't self clean well in this condition.

    What can you say about maxxis beaver?
