You really must go on Singletrack world or the fb group and ask

In all seriousness any old tyres will do it is an all weather environment.

Well maybe not some rock razers or tabletops but other wise normal stuff will be fine.

Do you use different set of tyres for each different place you go?

Depending on what bike i am ridding (my full sus banshee or hardtail stache 29er) and what time of year i will use different tyres but i really can't be bothered to change them if i can. At the moment i run magic marry front/hans damp rear on the banshee, hans damp front/nobby nick rear. Both rears will change to a rock razor in the summer months. As for different locations, no.

No I don't change tyres for every place I go, but at the moment round my way is very muddy so I'm running deep mud tyres. I do change from winter to summer tyres :D

What Rock Razor are you running..?? Pacestar..??

Finally settled on Magic Mary/Hans Dampf after trying a few different combo's, but will change again in the hotter drier months..

I see Rose bikes has them very cheap at present ,might give one a try..

Yep, pace star. They are a brilliant dry weather tyres (and even coped with winter ridding very well) but they don't stop you at all
