I used Vredestein clincher tyres. Quite narrow and good in mud as they cut through although being narrow you had to inflate them quite hard to avoid impact punctures.
Never had the pleasure of using Vredesteins though I always fancied giving them a whirl. Amongst clinchers of recent years, Hutchinson Pro Cross were good, still not convinced by the black version of Michelin Muds, Schwalbe CX Pro great if a bit too narrow sometimes. Panaracer Cindercross good but the rubber didn't seem overly hard-wearing. Currently on rare and sadly discontinued Nokians and they've been excellent so far. My first ever CX tyres - Vittoria Tigre Cross; complete pants, no real grip, swapped to Hutchinsons just before I started racing.
