mx31 front and rear at 6psi + tubliss works very well in the mud. i, on the otherhand, suck in the mud. had a great start (2nd into woods outta 16 on line) - i probably coulda been first into the woods, if i actually walked the first section of the course and knew what the line was.... i braked hard when i hit the woods due to not knowing what was ahead on the first big downhill.... my mistake..

anyways, the tires hooked up phenomenally, but i need lotsa practice with mud technique. i never got comfortable enough to even stand..

Has anyone run the MX31 on gravel roads?
I have a xc coming up, and its just started getting wet here, so the parts of the track that arnt gravel will be slippery, but theres always gravel roads at these events.
So will the MX31 last on gravel in semi anger, or will it be destroyed like S12s
I like how the MX31 works in slick conditions, but dont wont to kill my winter tyre at the start of winter.

MX 31 is described as a soft terrain tire so I also wonder how it will hold up in rocky abusive conditions. I'm sure the performance will be good because it's probably soft and sticky but the durability is the big question. I need more than 1 ride from a tire before it's flipped. (running TuBliss setup)

a soft terrain tyre should actually be a hard compound rubber with wide gaps between th eknobs, so it should not be soft and sticky. if you want long lasting quality try the Motoz tyres, or Mitas or maxxis

i have 4 (2 hour) races on the mx31 rear. 1 race was mud, the rest were loamy with some rocks.. flipped each race. this upcoming rocky one will definitely be it's last...i'm assuming it will chunk quite a bit.

I have destroyed all the soft terrain tires with the S12 style tread I have used in the rocks in short order. With the big gaps in the tread there is a lot of leverage to tear/chunk knobs. The MT16, VE33 seem to fare much better. I'm picking up a Tubliss soon and will try it with a new Maxxis SI rear, since the front works so well for me.

well the mx31 rear held up in the rocks. it definitely has trials like grip when run at 6psi... it surprisingly did not chunk, but it definitely shows lotsa wear. the front sucked on the hard pack/rocks - but i don't think any tire would have worked well - i was bouncing all over the place. i'm sold on the mx31's

Tubliss is the best thing to come along for the offroad guys in the last 10 years.
I haven't tried the MX31's yet but the 51 is the wost tire I have ever put on a 250 2 stroke. I ran a enduro in Maine with one and had no practice time with the tires. I don't know if I missed big time with the air pressure or what but it was the worst tire I have ever been on in my life. In the loam it would hold ok but when it let go it would let go a 100% and just destroy any confidence you had. Bring back the good old MT16 at 8 psi.

the mx51 rear is godawful. i destroyed it very rapidly, and it just didn't hookup. the mx31 is absolutely nothing like the mx51.
