    New tires?

    Hey all, i think it's finally time for new tires. I ride AM/FR/DH and my current tire setup is:
    Front: WTB All-Terrain tire (50% asphalt, 50% offroad. This is absolute nonsense and tire has like next to none grip)
    Rear: Schwalbe Marathon Pro (tire is almost dead and has like 10% life left on it)

    As you may notice, tires that i run are complete bullsh*t even for All Mountain riding, not even talking about FR/DH. I fell like 20 times only because of tires.

    My riding conditions are like: 50% dry, 50% muddy/wet. Nothing too specific like only mud or only dirt. Since my climate is continental, i have both really rainy days and really hot days.

    My budget is minimal like 15-20 euros per tire, so what would you recommend after all being said?

    P.S Tires that i run now are pretty narrow also, i would like wider tires as well. My rims are 26mm wide

    The Continental Vertical was my go to tyre for years. They are pretty well priced on CRC now for the wire bead version at 16.49 Continental Vertical MTB Tyre | Chain Reaction Cycles

    Wait, aren't Vertical's like XC based tire? What about 2.3 Continental Baron? they are like 23 euros.

    I may go for Baron in front and Vertical in back
