- Kenda Millville rear and Maxxis soft terrain front, my favorite setup. Just seemed work well in most every situation. Rear did chunk pretty easily though.
- Dunlop 739, seemed to spin a lot in sand, although cornered well
- Kenda Trekmaster II's ,tried them because I am dual-sported, worked well straightline, but would wash out / slide out in corners.
- Maxxis IT rear, (running now with a Dunlop 739 front, it is to Arizona what the S12 is to people in Michigan), works pretty good in the sand, but I don't think I'd use it in Michigan.
Also, my KX came with a King's tire on the rear. Looks like an exact copy of the S12, although the rubber seems harder. Only a few rides on it, but it's held up very well in the rocky crap I was riding in. Hooked well in the sandy washes. I have a set of King's dual sport tires (996 I think is the number) for the KDX, they are wearing like iron, although off road they have all the traction of a well waxed saucer. Scary in mud! I rode Durhamtown in Georgia on them in the rain. Wet red clay + dual sport tires = lots of almost crashing + pushing the bike up really easy hills.
