I know they have several of us hooked on this front tire. The tire flat out works well in all conditions. In loamy Ground it is nothing short of wonderful.

They have discontinued it. I would switch brands, but nothing holds a candle to the 756 rr. The tire even lasted a reasonable amount of time.

I have one left. Maybe I will send it back to them with a note..."CRAM THIS, YOU a-Holes!"

Try some 952's. I used to buy 756's too, but these work as well and last 10 times as long.

what about the 742f I thought it was built to go with a 756 rear?

I hope you mean they just discontinued the 756RR and not the 756.

Ride with the stocker for a while, then anything you switch to will grip like magic. It's all relative... :applause:

this is too true. that stock tire, especially the front, is horrid. makes me shiver to think about it, especially in the loose sand.

i ride a S-12 and it's great in the sand.

loam, what's loam? i've heard all about it, never seen it. here's it's all sand with some black dirt here and there.

Yes, I'm hooked on these tires too!

The story that I heard is that the RR is just out of production for the year. They will be doing a new production for next year with a revised (for the better) RR tire.

Thanks for letting me vent. I appreciate it. I will try a 952 and maybe a michelin.

Maybe I will ebay this last rr I have and see what happens. Its sort of like looking at the last condom in the package late sunday night. Sure you can use it, but then the fun is over.

All is not lost. I heard from a Tucker-Rocky rep that the 756RR will be back in the springtime. New & Improved! Like you, I prefer these tires over all others, especially in front.

I called Dunlop. They said they will be back in production in January so I'm just sticking it out w/ some Michelin I currently have on there until January.

Nothing comes close the the 756RR front.

How long did a 756 RR front usually last? On what terrain were you riding on?

The 756RR has a softer, tackier, more race oriented rubber compound than the standard 756. :applause:

Like you I was hooked on the 756RR but more so the rear. When I went in to Rocky Mountain ATV to buy another set they told me they had no more fronts but they still had some rears that they were discounting because dunlop discontinued them. I was pretty disappointed , But I bought every rear tire that they had ( seventeen of them to be exact) for just 60.00 apiece. Now if I could find some fronts laying in someones warehouse somewhere I would be set for awhile.

I'm a Dunlop guy as well, but lately I've read some good things on the M401F.

Anyone try these on the 21?


Whoops...my correction. The tires I was thinking about are the M401As and M402A, which came stock on the 05 RMZ.
