I've had good results with Schwalbe tyres. For a couple of years I had a Nobby Nic (27.5x3), commonly used as a rear tyre although not marketed rear specific, but switched this winter to a Magic Mary (27.5x2.8). In contrast, again although not sold as such specifically, a lot of bikers use the Magic Mary as a front tyre...

I'm loving the extra grip of the Magic Mary, which gives just a bit more braking ability on steep muddy downslopes, but I don't think front or rear bias makes a big difference.

Both Schwalbes are way better than the Knard (29x3) I had before, which self steered all over the place, presumably due to the flimsy carcass. This, and the overall grip is more of a deciding factor for me.
