What rear trials tyre would you recommend for muddy hills / bogs. I currently have a Michelin x11 on and needs changed so I was looking at the Dunlop d803 or Michelin X-light tyres would appreciate your opinions and how long they have lasted.

cheers

I have had good luck with Dunlop's and Michelin's in the mud myself.  But seem to recall people saying that IRC's are good in the mud, though I have never tried them.  I personally think the Michelin's are best over all so run them as my first choice, but with them being hard to get here in the US as of late I have been running Dunlops a lot as of late. 

My mind is that just a new tire is the best for helping in muddy conditions myself as it has a sharper edge profile but I admit I only ride middle of the pack skill wise so take this all with a grain of sand.  Good luck.

I have heard that the irc looses air quite often when hitting rocks etc which I do, that’s my only down put about it

I have heard about this fix from a number of people - apparently it works, although it sounds a bit iffy  - and would need some care with the tyre levers when fitting the tyre.

This morning, there's a brand new Dunlop GP 803 on my ST 250, it's not the first one I ride. I like the overall performance of the Dunlop. I ride in the mountain a lot more than competing.
