    I picked up a Continental Gravity Pro not too long ago. It was pretty sweet for the last few rides of the season. For cheap, maybe a WTB Velociraptor? It's an oldie but a goodie.

    The panaracer mythos/trialbears kick butt in leaves. The smallish hard knobs sort of cut through leafy carpets and stick to the trail.
    I just came off some specialized resolutions that did really well for me in the conditions you described. I just switched out to a fatter tire. Otherwise I would have kept them for the winter.

    I've been using Velociraptors for years. Still a very good tire, for the conditions here in CT.
