They are the standard tyre for people that can't be arsed to swap tyres for a whole year, whatever the conditions. The only time they could be limited in is the thickest of mud in deep winter. The tread is quite tight so it wont shed mud that easily.

Can't complain about the Panaracers. I had them on the Club Roost a while back, excellent all condition tyres. Got the High Roller XC's on in hope of some dry trails!

I think the Panaracer Cinders are marginally better than the Fire XC Pro, both are excellent all-round tyres though!

Its impossible to say if the Panaracers will be perfect for as we don't know what terrain you are riding on. You might prefer High Rollers or a dual compound tyre like the Michelin XCRs. Try them out, most people get along with them.

just get them they will do you fine, then change them if you find you hate them, you won't get much more advice than that as they are a decent all rounder

hi flubic the ones that came with my XTC SX were the kenda nevagal on the back and kenda bluegroove on the front. they are grippy and i am pleased with them. i think they are good tyres. but they are a bit noisy on road.
