    I need a good tubeless ready, mud tire...recommendations please.

    I need help with my cornering in the mud. I don't have the confidence in my Specialized Tracers in the mud and would like some other recommendations. Thanks.

    I quite like my Vittoria Cross XL Pro tires. The TNT versions are tubeless ready. They have a large open tread that's good for mud, though I use it as my main tire on my geared bike. I had a sloppy mud race 2 weeks ago, the first day I raced on these and felt pretty confident in the corners and off camber slop. The next day I raced on a set of MXPs (on my single speed) and I was all over the place. I'm considering picking up a 2nd set for the single speed.

    If the Tracers work for you, why not the Terra for muddier days?

    Thanks for the recommendations guys. I thought of the Vittoria XL and the Spec Terra but I ended up ordering a Maxxis Mud Wrestler TR. I liked the weight of it better than the XL and the profile and knobs better than the Terra. It should be in Thursday but it looks like the racing this weekend will be pretty dry so I may leave the Tracer on the front until the next muddy race.
