Rated 5 out of 5 by ExplosifPhil Never should have doubted
I started MTB BITD, mid 90's and always used Smoke's on the back and Tioga Psycho's on the front. I've tried lots of different tyres and Smokes or Fire Xc's can't be beaten. Excellent grip pattern which gives loads of grip in loose gravel, roots, fast rolling, clears mud easily and has strong side walls. Sounds to me like the best all rounder, can you think of a tyre that does all that lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tsuru My go-to budget tire
I love these tires as budget all-around tires. Low enough rolling resistance considering the size of the knobs, they shed mud, ice and snow well.
Can you get lighter/lower resistance/better traction tires for more money? Yes but at this price I don't think the premium is worth it unless you need something for a specific purpose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Movi good hard pack tire
Good level of grip in most conditions and clears the mud well. Also has a reasonable life span for the average rider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt350 Great product for the price
I have been using these tyres on the rear for years now and given the cost vs quality i rate them very highly. I find they provide great grip on dry ground but also are pretty good in the wet and mud, which sheds pretty well considering this isn't a mud tyre.
Wear is reasonable considering i usually incorporate short tarmac sections in my rides but they do squirm around a little on roads when new. Most knobbly tyres will do this though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chunky Good all rounder all season tyre
Fitted these tyres to my first mtb, rode them all year round, hardly any punctures and plenty of grip in dry and snow conditions. The tread clears itself well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Don't Buy These
I have never written a review on a product I purchased from the internet before but I felt compelled to write a review on this one. This tyre is absolute rubbish. Do not buy it! I've had more flats on this tyre than any other tyre in my life. The side walls are also thin as tissue paper. You will regret buying these... Apparently they are made by Panasonic who should stick to toasters and TVs. I have just ordered Continental Mountain Kings as I'm sure Continental knows a bit more about tyres than Panasonic...Good luck and heed my warnings, don't be a fool!
