    Looks like pretty remote country so something with sidewall protection (like Maxxis Exo, Schwalbe Snakeskin, etc.) would be recommended. You'll be after something reasonably fast rolling for the bits of the trail that are not single track.

    Alex at Bikerpelli.com runs 2 sag supported rides each year on the Pelli, he has tire reccs. Nutrition reccs. And I would say the expert on riding this trail. Even if you don't do his ride he has refined the issues to a science. Look at his site, everything is there. Frank
