    Please help me find the perfect tire!

    I've been shopping around all morning on jenson, pricepoint, and amazon while reading mtbr reviews.

    I have a 2009 spec rockhopper comp disc which came with Specialized Fast Trac LK sport. They are fine in the dry, but I live in Louisiana. The trails are usually mud, and i spin out and fall over, LOL. These tires look like a road tire when caked with mud, they cant shed anything.

    I'm not looking to go tubeless, id like something slightly thicker than the 2.0" i have. I also ride on pavement around my house a good bit. I guess im looking for a durable Mud-ish tire that wont get torn up on pavement. If that even exists? Oh and the lighter the better! Any suggestions welcome. i love cheap prices

    If you'd like to give some CST tires a try, I think you'll be happy with the performance. I would suggest the Ouster 26x2.25 front, Heathen 26x2.25 rear. The folding versions run about $24 each.

    It can be a little hard to find the folding versions, but it seems QBike has picked them up - Clinchers - Tires - Parts
    I've never bought from them, though, so I don't know how their service is.
