700x30 Michelin Muds

So it seems like the Michelin Mud 2 tires are only available in 30mm sizes. I've heard that they run wide, but it 30mm wide enough for a tire that is called "Mud"? Also, what other sizes of tires and brands have people had luck with in muddy conditions?

Thanks

The Muds are huge for their stated size. They are really like a 35mm. For sure they are wider than my 32mm Dugast tubulars.

The Muds do really well in the slop. I personally only run tubulars now, so I run the Rhinos in the bad stuff. They are essentially a Michelin Mud tread (very similar at leat) on a tubular casing.

Check aebike.com for Muds in other sizes. I believe they have the 32s and 35s

Sorry, Muds are only offered in one size. But, as I said.... they run really large.

As do the Sprints. They are certainly as large as my Maxxis 34mm and Grifo 34's.
