Im using the Kenda trackmaster 2, ........I ride trail and a few dirt roads so They work pretty good. A decent 6 ply tire with great wear.

Kenda has them listed as 10% road and 90% dirt.

Now i had the 756 front and rear when my crf was new and hated them , was unpredictable for me and that was when I lived in N.H. riding trails there.Now I have the milleville sticky's work pretty good but where fast! But I just moved from upstate N.Y. where there was alot of small sharp shale rock and hard dirt trails. Now that I just moved to PA. I'm thinking of going back to pirelli's MT18 front & 16 rear like I had on my 02' XR650R and loved them. I see now alot of people and in this months issue of dirtrider that a rear trials tire is the new way to go, Michelin has them and Dunlop has one that is almost half the price but no one makes them in a 19" rear tire size.

I love the D756's becuase they work well in every condition. I ride at tracks with different dirt from weekend to weekend and dont like changing tires until mine are worn. Sure there probably always a better tire for EACH condition then the D756 but the D756 works well in everything from hard pack, to deep mud.

Dunlop 952's. :thumbsup: Cheaper than the 756 and work just as well. The front is better than the 756 on hardpack/rocks and not quite as good in the real loose stuff, but lasts FOREVER. I have almost 400 miles on a front and it's barely worn.

The rear is about equal to the 756, maybe lasts a little longer.

How's that 952 hook up in the loose stuff? As good as the 756? I wonder how it would be in sand.

C'mon Mike, :thumbsup: can't you read? :bonk:

I stated it works almost as good as the 756 in the loose stuff but better everywhere else.

My bad. I meant to ask if it was as good as the 756 on the BACK too. If it's good in sand I will try it. :thumbsup:

Honestly, I can't tell a difference on the rear between the two. I can't comment how it works in the sand because there isn't any where I ride.

The 756 front will work better in the sand.
