UCI-Legal Mud Clincher?

I hope some of you can offer me some advice for a good mud clincher that will meet the UCI width requirements. I am registered for Master's Worlds and the latest tire I tried, the Maxxis Mud Wrestler, didn't shed mud as I had hoped. I am interested in the Clement PDX, but read that they often failed the check last year. My rims are American Classic Hurricanes, 22 x 24. I previously used challenge Fangos, but wanted something for deeper mud. Any suggestions? Thanks very much.

I think there is a limus clincher isn't there? Michelin muds? Buy some cheap calipers to make sure before you head out there

The PDX's are big. I'd look into the Limus as well.

OK, I totally screwed up. I was getting things wrong.
For US Nationals, they are not enforcing a 33mm tire width for Masters; they are using 35mm

For World's, it says nothing - so I guess 33 mm will be the rule.

Sorry, being from SoCal - I'm no help when it comes to mud.

Another vote for the Limus.

Mud 2s are great tires. I would not run them in anything super boggy though. I'd be surprised if the "30" is bigger than 33, but they do run big.
