Any DH rider should own a pair of mud tyres (even if you’ll only use them once in a while) and these Wet Screams are our personal favourite.

It’s a hard thing to get a mud tyre right, too high knobs and they’ll squirm all over the place, too low and they won’t cut through to the harder stuff underneath. With these Maxxis have got it spot on, and the quality of construction and compound is great too.

Of course like any mud tyre you’ll come unstuck if you try and use them in the wrong conditions, but these will get you safely through some rocky sections where others would falter. If you’re struggling to justify buying a set of these because you know you won’t use them much, then just think how long they’ll last you. You’ll also be bloody glad you did buy them the next time it really pisses it down.
