I ride out of Tucson. We use either the Dunlop 739AT Desert or 756. SWMoto Tire in Tucson also has been selling the Mettzler tires. I've tried both their MC5 and MC4 rear tires on my WR450F. The MC5, I thought chunked out too easily, but the MC4 handles our desert pretty well. However, neither the Dunlops or the Mettzlers last that long. Believe it or not the 756 Dunlop (basically a sand tire, held up best of the four). NOTE: I speak only of rear tires, I use the Dunlop 739 FAJ as a front and like it alot.
