Tree Slime

Not exactly CV but since it impacts my CV ride here goes....I like trees. I like deciduous trees, and the lovely colors that the leaves turn this time of year. What I donít like is tree slime, you know, the gooey paste that the leaves become when they get wet and are ground up by cars, people, bikes, etc. Even with fenders, my frame and wheels are slimed by the end of the ride. I can deal with that. Itís the loss of traction thatís my concern. A Slipping rear wheel as I climb, or the dreaded front wheel slide in corners are things I try to avoid. So here is the question...any tires better or worse for dealing with arboreal slush?
