Yes, the stock WR tires are junk --I always joke that they only grip good on pavement!! For mud rides get a michelin S-12 size 140/80-18 (Rear). And for the front I run a Dunlop D756 but I have heard great things about the Maxxis Maxcross SI front. The Maxxis will be my next front tire.

I am running an IRC M5B on the rear. Lots of guys had harsh things to say about it, but so far it has been sweet. Alot of the hillclimbers around here run them, they are great in anything soft and so far have held up better than expected in the rocky hard stuff. I rode some real hard shale ledges and miles of sharp dry creek bottom the other day and not one chunk gone. 756 on the front. :)

I just ordered the IRC M5B based on a lot of positive comments I've heard. The knobs on that sucker are huge.

Yeah, its badazz. Sucker hooks up like mad. I havent tried the Maxxis , but alot of real knowledgeable(sp) riders on this forum love them. I might try a different front next time, the dunlops(739 & 756) just are not holding up real well.

Maxxis SI front and rear! :)

Good side bite? The stockers seem to really lack any kind of side grip.

IRC M5B works great for mud, sand, hills, and loose rocky stuff. On harder terrain, it gets squirrelly in the turns.

Mud + M5B + Rekluse = Awesome

side grip on the SI 120/100-18 is the best i've ridden. it just sticks on off camber like glue and i can hang it out sideways like never before and still have total control :) the front is just as amazing.
