Ok guys I was reading about tire usage of whats best for the desert, I am curious what tires my friends in the NorthWest are using. I am using the M-12 on the rear but need to change once again after maybe 5 rides at Browns Camp(tillamook forest). I know the gravel roads are killing the tire but and I know these are soft tires. What are you guys using or recommend. I am looking for a harder tire that will give me a few more miles and of course the wet weather is coming soon so a tire change is in need regardless.
