Tire choice varies depending on your riding terrain. I've been happy w/ the Maxxis I/T series. They work well and wear like iron at a price that will make you smile all the way to the bank! :thumbsup:

I was dispointed with my maxxis IT. Once the knobbies started to round off the tiniest bit it seemed like it lose all of its traction. Currently, I am running a D756 for the front and a D952 for the rear. I have been very happy with both for my conditions. For you I would recommend the same thing. I have about 5 hours of track time on my D952 rear and it still looks pretty good. I ride a 450 so for it to look as good as it does is pretty remarkable. Both ends grip very very well.

Another vote for Maxxis IT sucks. Oh nevermind, the guys said it was awesome.haha. I seriously hate the Maxxis IT, its too squirrely and it doesn't last as long as people say unless they are slow trail riders.

I love the Michelin MH3 rear. I have a MS3 front but will probably try a MH3 front next too.
