Because the first post was cut, I'll ask again. Is this tire a good one for the desert? Does it chunk up? Rock cuts?

They are great. Just don't tell anyone. Rocky mtn has a tough time keeping them in stock. A friend in AZ runs them all the time and I run them in nor cal shale/quartz rock with no problems. For the price you can repleace them every 300-500 miles no problem.

It's the only tire that my whole riding group uses. We ride the Rocky Mountain area and the tire holds up really well. It doesn't chunk up and the new version has more ribbing between the side knobs to help with cutting knobs on rocks. You can not beat this tire for the money. My .02--WR Dave. :cry:

I had one on my old WR426F (sold several months ago) and it worked nice. I thinks its an IT type terrain, not so well for soft. I was on the throttle hard and was in real rocky areas and did take some chunks out, but it wasnt the tires fault, it was mine. I abused it pretty bad. Great wearing tire with good bite! :cry:

I put them on my son's yz250f as a test and they are short lived. I still can't find a tire as good as the dunlap 739 desert/AT, for all around riding here in the Rockies.

Your kidding about the Dunlop 739 right? I ride in the rockies and it lasted OK but it wouldn't stick to S#%T as far as I'm concerned. :cry:

I have to 2nd that vote. The D 739 is OK in the hard pack, but there are much better tires out there for the soft terrain and mud.

739, too much wash out front or back. The millville doesn't klast more than one summer, Try the 756 Dunlop. Good hookup in soft or hard.
