    Help with wet winter tyre choice

    I am just about to order some new tyres, but a little confused with what to run on the front of the bike over winter now that we have choice!

    I'm sold on the idea of a nate on the rear for improved traction in sticky mud, & I was planning to fit a BFL on the front for no other reason than....because I can!

    Should I go for the BFL, or 2 nates? I really want a BFL, but I'm guessing it might let me down in the slippy corners tho....

    Ride everything from sand to claggy mud..... everyone's opinion appreciated

    BFL front/Husker Du rear

    I'll do that if my current dual BFL setup doesnt work.

    I'll be interested to hear what people say about the Husker Du... the knobs look close and low (compared to the Nate). I would think the Nate will be better in mud than the Husker Du.

    What are you winter conditions? You mention wet winter but then say sticky mud so I'm not sure what you're riding in.

    I live on the coast with beach on all sides. But if I head inland the trail types are really varied, but mostly soft loam & muddy bog / moor I have had problems with the larrys on rear in the places with the sticky mud.
    There is never going to be an all in one choice for all the conditions I ride, but I'm trying to work out the best compromise for most trail conditions.
    After sleeping on it (again) im back to thinking about a BFL on front again
