    Which tyre would you say is better as a do it all, all year round, fast-ish, decent volumed all mountain tyre (to be run tubeless) with heaps of grip?

    Fat Alberts get good response from people but I don’t think any of those tyres have issues apart from the Queens, they are supposed to be massive for their stated size.

    Yeah, I heard that from someone else as well. Still finding it hard to believe, as I had a pair of Conti MKs before, and they were tiny for 2.2s.

    Nah, had the MK USTs. Useless on loose corners. Great fun drifting around muddy corners, but not enough grip overall.

    Mk’s with air in measure up exact across the tread in my experience.

    The 2.4″ are very good but a bit weak in the sidewall hence the light weight. Excellent in our mud and good on roots/rocks/dirt. The first winter I’ve not bothered putting mud tyres on for quite a while.

    No experience of any of those but you aren’t going to find anything that is fast and grippy.

    nics are fast and grippy, but they just wear too quickly. plenty of other tyres are fast and grippy as well.
