The 756 is on the left MX51 on the right Both of these tires have eight four lap MX motos on them and about the same amount of practice laps.

MXR, Did the 756 hold up better for you. Hard to see in the photo.

About the same for me Im sure its relative to the type of soil that the tire is used on.

On that note, I'll go way out on a limb and say that the soil in VA is way different from SoCal. Out here, a 756 rounds off in a day, and the grooves in the center knobs disappear in no more than 4. One thing they don't do is tear off whole knobs. They'll tear and chunk in the rocks, but they stay on OK.

In Virginia we have lots of different soil to ride on from hard clay to sandy soil. Both of the tires in the picture were used in soft soil. I was actually disapointed in the MX51 as I was expecting the tire to stay square edged a lot longer from what I have read. I will admit if your riding on medium to hard soil you will eat the 756 up fast. You need to understand I ride strictly MX tracks no rocks or logs strictly medium to soft soil with the 756.

I just got mine shipped to the house. I did not realize how short my knobbies were until I put the new tire side by side with the old set. They look almost identical to the stock Bridgestone 402's that came on it. Maybe these have a taller knobbie from the start from the looks of it. Can't wait to get them on this weekend.
