    I also like (and am currently using) the Panaracer Fire XC Pro but they don't perform very well when things get extremely muddy. As an all-around XC tyre, they're pretty good though.

    at the risk of having tomatos thrown at me i will say again.Panaracer Trailblaster 2.1 has been the best tire ive ever ridden and i have ridden many types and brands

    I have had good luck with the IRC Serac XC 2.1. (UST). Good in all conditions I see in the northeast. I think it runs narrow, more like 2.0. For dry conditions and hardpack in AZ I loved the Hutchinson Masquito UST

    i actually just got them, so far they are a great all around tire. around here i ride pretty much hardpack, light sand/rocks/gravel. not much mud, but i read that they dont perform well in mud anyway

    I also ride the panaracer fire xc pro. Like it allot. I've never used them in really muddy conditions, but rode on a damp trail with the occasional mud puddle last weekend and they did great.
