    Short answer = no.

    Long answer = It depends on the soil type, moisture content of said soil, tire pressure, rim width, rider weight, bike type, rider skill, and a few other things.

    How many threads are you going to create with this ~same topic?

    Which one of these tires has the most traction?



    or this



    Answer, IT DEPENDS.

    There is not ONE tire that has maximum traction in ALL conditions.

    Theyíve got a lot of traction. So much traction that I typically run Jumbo Jimís in the summer instead of the stock FBRs on my Mukluk. Iím a big fan of skinny Minion traction, but fat Minion has about 150% more grip than I typically need on the average dirt day.

    If you get the fat specific rubber version, you want tire#4.
    It's the grippiest.

    150%?
    I'm 78% sure that's not possible.

    150% is indeed very possible! If I had the leg power I could actually rotate the earth underneath those tires.

    Sometimes the 22% wins. It is entirely possible for someone to be going at 100% effort and only use 67% of the available traction.
