Firstly, apologies for a tyre thread, I know, I know.

So I'm looking at new tyres for improving grip on the downhills. Currently have Conti Trail Kings, 2.2, and were fine to start with. But more recently, as I'm pushing more on the downhills I'm finding the front end sliding a bit too much for my liking.

Although I'm getting quicker, up hills are still slow, so the last thing I want is to make it harder. I'm looking at the following, any advise appreciated. Typical trail riding, Swinley Forest and Surrey Hills.
