I'm going to start at a local mine dh race and I'm wondering what are the best tires for mine type track (partial wet concrete - steps etc partial gravel or sth similar). When the local site is back up I'll link a promo movie. Anyone has any actual experience? I'd also need the tires to be ust so that makes it a bit harder.

Well, technically, ANYTHING can be made tubeless, but I still don't see the point. I've tried it over and over and it's dumb. I'm back to tubes and life is easier.
I'd stick with a stick lug tire. Street tires like the Holy Roller, etc wash out really easily on even sandy sidewalks. What about the Kenda Small Block 8? Good, fast tire. Just don't fill it full of Stans if you want to use them long.

I really like the small block 8's but they don't last very long. If it's a race tire then who cares how long it lasts. Get that 1st!
