    That's a very broad question to ask.

    I would suggest some tires that have a consistently good reputation, like WTB Velociraptors or Kenda Nevegals

    Panaracer Smokes are nice. Don't know if they are still in production.

    I always figured it depends on what kind of terrain you ride on mostly. Widely spaced knobbies are good for mud, closely spaced for hard packed dirt/clay, paddles for sand, etc. I think you have to decide which type you need before you should start worrying about the brand and model.

    OK i am in the market for some new tires as mine are dry rotted. I have a cannondale prophet and live in florida where we can have some very soft sand in spots. I am thinking i want to get the widest agressive tires i can put on the bike without causeing issues with rubbing. what would you guys suggest? most of the trails here are a mix of packed soil and areas of sugar sand, I do climb as well as jump.

    Ironhead, I'm not a huge expert on this, but I imagine the Velociraptors (here if you don't mind wire bead) would serve you well. The rear has slight paddles to help out in the fine sand but they aren't too spaced out to be annoying when you hit the packed dirt. I'm not sure exactly how well the front would corner in the sand... I rarely see soft sand where I ride.

    You know damn well that the correct answer is still Maxxis...you're just getting paid to say otherwise!

    This Panaracer? The bike I just bought had one of those. I'm using it on the rear and it works fine, but it will probably hold onto mud a little bit since the knobbies aren't as widely spaced as they could be. Still not bad, though.

    There is...with judicious use of a sharpie

    I can't believe people are still riding, let alone recommending, Smokes and Velociraptors. Psycho skinwalls FTW!
