Winter and summer tyres?

edited August 2007 in MTB buying advice
The tyres that came with my bike seem to enjoy collecting mud and hanging on to it for ages. Need a set of decent winter (or summer this year) tyres and some lighter rolling ones for when the trails eventually dry out. Been out of the game for a while so no idea what's good and what isn't.

Any advice?

    What mtb had a good supplement on tyres last month if you can get hold of a copy.

    What sort of riding are you doing?
    '08 Stumpjumper FSR Pro
    '04 Allez Sport

    When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and dream, or RIDE.

    The choice is yours...

    Bontrager Mud x or Panaracer Trailrakers for winter.
    Maxxis High Rollers,Panaracer FIRE XC Pro or CInders,or Schwalbe Nobby Nics as all rounders
    Panaracer Razer,Michelin XCR dry,Conti Speedkings,or Schwalbe Racing Ralphs if you want to trade some grip for speed.

    Good idea to ask in your local shop,and also local riders what they reccomend,as they will know what suit local conditions.

    My Schwalbes are great here in Hertfordshire,but might not be my first choice if I lived in the Peak District.
