I rode a pair of the Sedona tires and actually took them back after 1 ride. The main problem was the front but the rear wasn't all that great either.
The biggest problem I had with the front tire was a tendency to understeer until it scrubbed off enough speed and then it would suddenly bite and take off in the direction I was originally intending to go, albeit a few feet further down the trail than I wanted.
The rear tire just didn't have much grip at all. I couldn't tell whether it was a tread pattern or compound issue but in general, I expect a lot better performance from a new tire. Neither of these tires offered it.
Cheap, but not really worth the money. Spend another $20 per tire if you can afford it, you'll be much happier.

The Sedona rear tire has one of if not the stiffest tire carcasses that i have ever changed. This is the most difficult tire i have ever mounted and i mount all my tires myself. Much stiffer than a Maxxis IT Desert 120.
The tire seemed to get decent traction I had no traction problems at first. The cornering was on par with a Maxxis Desert IT nothing special but nothing bad.
This is one of the fastest wearing tires i have ever used! I believe it must be the stiff tire carcass with relatively soft knobs but the WR just ripped the knobs off this tire. some chunk-ed and the rest just wore down quick. This tire wore down to 1/4" tall center knobs in one enduro (90 miles of desert rocks and hills) and one trail ride (75 miles)
I got this tire Cheap at Cycle Gear for 45$ I am always on the the lookout for tires on sale. At that price I might try the rear again but I will most likely not use this tire again.

Cycle Gear. At first they weren't going to do it but then I reminded them of their 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Had 'em by the sack with that one. They gave me store credit which was fine with me.
Who sold them to you that they will accept used tire returns?
Now that is Customer Service

Fix that front brake hose before you get hurt. Will take about three minutes, do it.
The Sedona tires are just for looks. The rubber breaks off along with numerous other deficiencies. Please save yourself the time and money. You can go get take offs from your local shop that will work MUCH better than a brand new Sedona 887. Plus they will feel so sorry for you that they will probably hook you up for a tire for near cost and put it on for you for another $10. Here is my review if you want to see the shocking pictures of what happened to a pair of Sedona tires that came (in new condition) on a used bike I bought. I was happy that the bike came with them new because I always wanted to try some out but I know you get what you pay for so I never could bring myself to be caught buying them at my local Cycle Gear. So I did a top end job on this RMZ250 I bought and shredded the tires in the first 40 minutes of riding! You be the judge but first look at the pictures of the knobbies ripped off of these Sedona tires http://www.fourwheel...read.php?t=2037 .

The rear is a better tire than the front.

*edit* I was in the middle of servicing the bike so I just had assembled things loosely to roll it around. I went ahead and went through the forks after that picture so I did tighten stuff down the right way. Good eye George. Yeah and no matter what I do to the forks they don't touch the performance of the newer twin tubes. I'll have to upgrade to a newer set one of these days.
Beezer I put a set of MT-21's on a dual sport bike I have and they work better than I expected. I might have try out the 16s like you said.
