My next tire is going to be the mt21 on the rear but I'll make sure I'll choose a size as wide or wider thant the stock one.
One thing is sure, dot tire is not as good as a real dirt knobbies. However, it last longer than 10 km on the road!!! I run on and off road and this is why I accept to do the compromise. I prefert to save tire change than having the best tire for each condition. I have slicks and don't use them.

If DOT is not important then the Dunlop 756 front and a Dunlop 739 "DESERT" is also a good choice for a tough tire. Make sure the 739 says "desert" on the side.
Of the above tires the Dunlop 606 will out last them all it is a great tire for longivity and excellet performance everywhere except the real soft stuff. It would be great in rocks and shale.

Kenda K760 Trackmaster 11 is one of the most underrated tyres around, inexpensive by comparison and as tough as teak. Good gear.
