tyre profile aswell-high or low.
I never go below 14psi front or 12psi rear but I only use tyres with super strong walls.
If i'm stuck on a super slippery hill i will let the rear down to 8psi to get up it & when i get to the top i pump it back up. A good pump will put an extra 5 psi into the tyre in about 10 to 15 pumps.

Traction might be slightly better with less than 12, but I've had too many pinch flats in Wayne to do this anymore. Also, your rims can dent on rocks if the pressure is too low.
I recommend to run GOOD mud tires and stay in the 11-13 pound range. S12's rule in mud! Nothing will help your confidence traction more than good tires.
I had no problems climbing those slippery hills at Wayne on Sunday on 1/3 baked S12's! 756's would have been a nightmare.

Gotta love Ohio, a guy came into work Thursay with sunglasses and an umbrella. Even our offroad terrain is finicky.

Actually, they have done a lot of work on the trails this year. In December there were sections of main Corridor that were virtually unpassable to the average rider.
The deep mud holes are still there, but there's almost always another way around them. Really sorry to hear what happened to your bike,Mark. Hope you have the bike ready for June 30th

Got it back together and rode it at Wild Wilderness Raceway tonight. Seems fine but have about 12 hours in it. Even took the afternoon
off to get to ride it today.
