Pros: - Roll fast
- Light weight
- been very durable

Cons: These came stock on my Anthem, I am sure in the right conditions these tires are great. In the Northeast these tires are a nightmare slipping and sliding on every damp rock or root, and as the name indicates forget about mud!

Pros: More grip than the nevegal. Wide spaced knobs throw mud off easily and keep the tread clean.

Cons: Heavy also buzzes on solid ground.

Recommendation: Great tire for the Fall and Winter months when the trails are more damp and less predictable.

Pros: A decent amount of traction on hardpack and even on some loose dry stuff. Rolls quickly

Cons: Corning is a bit sketchy tends to wash out a bit, not as light as you would think

Recommendation: If your into riding on the street alot or your trails are mainly hardpack, rocky or dry these work decent enough however mossy, wet trails forget it these don't offer enough to ride hard.

Pros: These tires roll well, climbing with these on the correct terrain that these are designed for they work wonderfully, and the tubeless version do not require any sealant..

Cons: Braking is a bit weak on these tires, they do break free on loose soils and forget mud.

Recommendation: A decent tire for those who are running hardpack and want a tire that rolls well good for competition but thats about it...These do wear out quickly.

Pros: Tubeless holds air, Great traction in a climb corners great.....

Cons: Tire wears out a bit quickly and vibrates a bit much on hard pack

Recommendation: Great tire as advertized, hassle free mounts quickly and tough. I would recommend these to anyone. If you can find these on special even better.

Pros: price. good combo tire.

Cons: doesn't go through the mud like you would expect from a tire with mud in the name.

Recommendation: A good all arround tire, but if the course is muddy and it is race day, you may find better options. If it's not a race and you just want to ride on a wet day, this tire will do you fine.
