Looking for a pair of mud tyres in the ballpark of 500g each.

WHY? :)

How do they mesure up against their claimed diameter?

Paul,

got some Conti Edge 1.9's - used for 10 miles but one pair too many to keep.

Got a nice pair of Maxxis ADvantage in 2.0 they have a nice big volume, Kevlar bead and a chunky (typical Maxxis) self cleaning tread. They roll well too. Also a pair of Panarace XC Fire pro in 1.8 @ 450 gram, these roll really fast but have an agresive tread and bright red edges. Also a new pair of IRC Mibro (TNT) 1.95, ex-British team surplus stock-they use them, super fast rolling with ramped knobs, can be run at low pressures with the thicker side walls and still roll and clear well. pick of three really.

I've got a pair of IRC Mud Mads/1.95/folding that I'll put in For Sale when I get a pic organised. Used, but not much wear.

These have big, wide-spaced knobs and are great for grip and mud-shedding in seriously muddy conditions. Only selling because on the chalk downs hereabouts we rarely have quite enough mud to really need them. But I expect this is what's wanted up north.
