    Best Tubeless 26er Tire for riding in wet and muddy conditions...

    I am currently running OLD, 2.1 WTB WeirWolfs and am about to get a light and fast wheelset for XC racing with a Maxxis Ikon/Ardent Race Combo (Thank you Mike C).

    I also got a deal for a buildup on a trail wheelset with 23mm inner width, given the memory of last years "MudMan", I'd like to shoe these with something more suited for the soup. What would all yee reccomend?

    I don't have any experience with them but I've always been intrigued by the continental mudking ProTection. Biggest downside is that they are narrow, but that's also the upside since like cyclocross tires a narrower profile cuts through and digs in where a wider tire might float and squirm across the surface. The width also gives more mud-clearance to your frame, so you don't end up with a locked rear wheel all covered in stick leaves and mud. https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/...n/rp-prod83014

    Thank you for pointing these out. An option I was previously unaware of.

    If you want a wider tire than the Mudking, the Continental Der Baron is 2.4 and does really well in loamy northeast mud.

    Yes ended up grabbing Minion DHF 2.3 up front and DHR II 2.3 our rear. Both 3C/EXO/TR

    The max I can fit in the front fork is 2.4 (I dunno how big and I cram in the back yet.)

    I was going to go with WTB Vigilante 2.3’s to match the rims- Tough Fast in the out back, Tough sticky up front- but they were out of stock, more expensive and heavier than the Minions, so the Maxxis’ won.
