I mostly ride in my field which is grass and in the woods on trails etc. What would be a really good set of tires (front & rear)?

I reaLLY like the dunlop 756 tires, they do wear out faster than a 952 but they hook up great for me. I feel like I have superpowers with the 756 as opposed to the 952. However the 952 lasts alot longer, especially when you hit the pavement. They ar both good tires, I guess it depends if you want optimum traction or longer where. I would recommend going with you stock tire size.

Ok thanks, Yeah they do get good traction on grass and all i was just wondering if there was a tire that was way better for the kind of riding i do.

For the rear check out the Kenda Washougal Sticky...holds up very good and hooks up in a wide variety terrain. I have been a Dunlop guy for awhile, but they wear down too quick for me.

Go with the Pirelli Scorpion Pro for the front, and the Pirelli MT-16 for the rear....especially if you ride trail, fields, hardpack medium, etc. etc.

I've run Dunlop's, Maxxis, etc. and found this combo (the Pirelli's), to work the best on everything. It is the favorite combo of Dwight Rudder the National Enduro champ, so it's gotta be decent.

I just tried my first Pirelli Scorpion. I've been through most of the others and I knew was a little harder and the pattern looked intersting so I gave it a shot. The track I ride on the most gets hard pack before the end of the day so I figured I had nothing to lose. Wow. It really is a damn good front tire. It stuck good early when the track was loamy and it really stuck good when the track got hard. I noticed when coming in hot before a flat turn the back would try to slide out but the front always stuck well. I want to try the rear now.
