You will probably get some responses here but this is not a terribly active site. Try these:

http://www.mtbr.com/ - "Mountain Bike Reviews, Best Mountain Bike Brands, Mountain Bike Trails, Mountain Bikes for Sale, Bike Parts, MTB Forums"

http://www.bikeforums.net/forumdisplay.php/26-Mountain-Biking - Bikeforums.net is one of the most active Bike Forum sites on the Internet. Also many other sub-forums, including Bicycle Mechanics for repair and maintenance issues.

Sheldonbrown.com has a wealth of info as well.

cny has provided you great suggestions. You need to provide a whole lot more information about where you are planning of riding for any good recommendations on tires. There are tires that do better in sand, ones that do better in mud, and others that do better over rocky terrain. I concur with cny's recommendations of where to ask your questions, the more complete information you provide with your questions, the more useful the information you will receive.
