The old one was a Dunlop 756 on a wr450.

I'm using the Desert IT too. Longest lasting tire i've bought so far. The hookup on it is pretty good too IMAO.

Be adventurous and try a trials tire. It wears much, much longer than the others and traction is amazing. You might not ever switch back. It is the perfect tire for Cal City and Dove Springs.

That said, in the dry, sandy, rocky terrain I ride it still hooks up better than a Desert IT.
But it does wears out faster than a Desert IT.

I've never bothered trying the regular Washougal

Well I have one ride on the IT so far and it seemed fine to me, but my old tire was so bad I was really glad to have a new tire! Now for the front tire it seems ok at the moment but I would like to get rid of it it's a 739 and have no Idea what to get next, whats the more popular tire for the front? any suggestions are appreciated.
I went with the maxxis ht front and have loved it so far, the ht rear on the other hand hooked up great but after 200 miles it looks worse then the stock dunlop after a year around 700 to 900 miles:foul:
