What kind of tires do you like?

I have searched the Archive and see that alot of good tald about the Dunlop 756 for a front tire. I have the Dunlop 739 and Pirelli MT21 both dont hold on hard packed logging roads or on soft trails. Has anybody tried the MAXXIS 6001 series? After all they are about 20 bucks cheaper.

If you want a tire that grips like rubber cement in the corners, go with Dunlop D755 front.

Dunlop 752 fronts for me unless you happen to see a Michelin m11 both tires work like velcro. D 752 rear is a (soft) tire but I have found it to work and wear well on blue groove too....

I used to like the 752's, but dont you find that the side lugs rip off easily?

Mabye its just the terrain of where I ride.

De'javue my 755 tire experience had me tearing off the knobs. :) Sure do like the looks of it though man does it look meaty :D Haven't torn any knobs off of the 752's yet, did have a sidewall start to split after having to ride 30 miles back to the truck on a front flat up in Shasta. Shasta Dam H.S.

I have had good luck with grip and wear with the IRC IXO7S(soft to intermediate) for a front tire and a Michelin M12 rear. Both have held up great through two enduro's and two extended trail rides in Colorado and Black Hills SD. No chunking in the rocks with either tire, and the grip of the IRC in my opinion is excellent.

Lost of loose terrain riding in New Mexico. Sand, loose dirt and rocks. . .I use the Dunlop 756 front and rear. Most excellent tire. Carves nicely in the sand, and really grips in the loose dirt. Holds pretty well in the hard pack too. . . .doesn't tear knobs off.

Dunlop 756 front & rear. Hook up in sand, mud & other dirt. Also wear well even on pavement!

I agree, Dunlop 755 front and rear, can't beat them in the east coast woods. :)

i had a 6001 on my bike & wore it out completely in one week of green laning & road use last week in the isle of man. the michelin front is untouched but the maxxis has got about 6mm left in the middle from new.

i didn't do one lap of the TT circuit with it either!

I like the Pirelli MT44. Good traction in mud and decent wear. Also DOT approved.

Shinko "Holeshot" tires, intermediate terrain, front and rear. They are basically Yokohamas made in korea, great quality, cheaper labor rate = great value. They are MUCH less expensive than dunlop 755/756's I pay 35.00 front 45.00 rear, and they dont chunk the side knobs, they stick like glue!

I agree with Matt Poritt.

I bought a set of S -12 Michilen for riding in Michigan they work great. I was a Dunlope man until these tires.

Front Dunlop 756, Michelin S-12 or Michelin Enduro Comp III. Rear: for Dual sport Dunlop 606 (NOT TO GOOD IN SOFT OR MUD), for general trail riding Dunlop 756, Dunlop 739 DESERT AT (one tough tire), or a Michelin S-12.
