I had the 739 AT, and can honestly say it is my least favorite front tire. The rear was okay, nothing special. Stick with Maxxis.

Try the Bridgestone M601 front. Nice tire for hard terrain. The M401 is also good if you get into more sandy desert.

The 739 is good for holding down tarps on a windy day. :thumbsup:

The 739 is a hardpack tyre, not good for sand riding. The 756 is a soft terrain tyre.

I ride over a large variety of different surfaces and I was not impressed with the characteristics of the D739. I changed to an IRC VE35 and was totally impressed on how much better the bike would hold a line. The VE35 also has a more aggressive knob pattern, has more grip, is cheaper and lasts much longer. Check it out.

If I ever had to run Super Moto on a 21" wheel, the D739 is the tire I'd use.

I cannot honestly say much about the D739 tire specifically. Although, I will give my .02 on Dunlop and their customer service. A couple of weeks ago I was mounting a new D952 and the bead absolutely shredded on me. I have mounted many tires over the years, and yes I know what I am doing. Obviously the tire had poor craftsmanship or materials. The customer service at Dunlop, once you get someone on the phone, was horrible. They really acted as though they did not care about their product or reputation. I understand I am only one person and a nobody, but they were down right rude on the phone. When I told them their information was incorrect on their web site, he basically said that he did not care. I told him that I understand they are a business and are in business to make money. Just stand behind what your web site says is your warranty policy and who are your dealers. Needless to say, I will not buy another Dunlop again. I am sure their CEO will not be able to buy that extra house because of loosing my business, but it is the whole principal in the matter. Of course, I am trying to recruit as many other consumers to stay away from Dunlop as well. If they treated me that bad when I had a situation, they will you also.

The Dunlop 739AT on the rear is a good tire but the Maxxis is better (for desert riding)The 739 on the front is not too exciting and I am going to try the Maxxis up front for my next tire.
