if you are hunting a good trail and mud tire, consider the highlifter radial outlaws. i have had these tires for a while and swear by them. even if you ride 50-50 trail-mud or slight mud riding it is a great tire. these tires dont pull to ruts like my old 589mt's did. with the foot print the tire has i was surprised that i could fell comfortable running 55mph down the trail and still be able to sling it sideways around a curve, or run 65 on hardpack or pavement and be smooth as glass. the also have no bumpyness at low speeds. these tires are also wonderful for rock riding also, i was suprise how well they gripped in wet rocky riding. they are worth checking out before you buy tires.
