I have been researching and browsing through the forums about tires and have a few questions about my specific needs in a tire. First of all my 06 450 has the stock 756 rear 739 front. I like this combo, the rear hooks up very well, good cornering traction, but wears insanly fast. The front is pretty much confident in most terrain. I had a Mxxis Desert IT on my XR 250 and it seemed to wear like iron but was not very good when the terrain got wet, and was HEAVEY. I would like to try a kenda tire, as they are very good prices, and I have read many good things about certain models. For instance, somone wrote that the Carlsbad Stickey worked and wore well for him even in rockey terrain. I would like a tire that will hook up in very loose coal/shale hill climbs, and resist chunking in rock gardens. Where I ride it is either loose coal or a bed of rocks. Would the Casrlsbad Stickey work for me, or would it wear out way too quick?? Just the regular Carlsbad??
