I like rocks mud and dirt

Well of course you do what 426master wouldnt :) silly boy..

Then the Dunlop 756 will be good for the mud, rocks will wear it pretty quick. Of course there is dirt mud and rocks. Cant vouch for the s12 durability. Both tires are for soft terrain aka MUD, sand forrest Loam

I prefer the 756

Yes, Michelin S12s are great tires in the soft stuff, but they wear REAL QUICK, and they are made in France and Frogs suck. Tim

The s12 front lasts well and works in all kinds of conditions. It is weak in very hard terrain but you can get by on them to get to the softer terrain. I do not recommend them for hard terrain conditions all the time. I know some of the guys in the Colorado area prefer dunlops on the harder surfaces. I am out in Colorado now riding for 10 days and the s12s are holding up so far.

I have bought more Michelin tires than anything else and have always thought they were top quality. But I have seen where they are French owned. Thats a toughy if they are produced in Spain. I have a hard time with French products right now because of their lack of loyalty after all we have done for them. Tim
