The 739 is listed on Dunlop's web site as a tire suitible for hard pack to blue groove. My experience indicates that the front is a fairly good road racing tire, but anything softer than dry clay is pretty much out of the question.

I don't know what the dirt in Michigan is like, but for a good versatile setup, use a Dunlop 756 or a Maxxis IT on the rear, and a 756 in front. If hard pack is common where you ride, you can use a 742 in front instead. It works OK in medium soft stuff and does better than a 756 on really hard dirt.

773s are better if your playground is mostly soft to intermediate.

The first thing I replaced, was the font with a 756. I just ordered a 756 for the back, along with a maxxis IT to compare. I myself dont care for the 739s either. Grayracer is right on the money !!
