Try a Dunlop D952. My favorite.

An excellent gripping, long-lasting tire. If you ride in intermediate terrain with a hard underbase, it's almost like cheating. I run D952's front and rear on my 07 YZ450F.

My recommendation is based on use in the SoCal desert; hard pack to gravel to sand to rock to DG. The rear will out last 4 756's and bite better in the sand. The front is excellent, too, although I currently favor a 755.

Try the Maxis dessert IT. About $75 at Cycle Zone. Eventually the rocks out here will eat anything up no matter what your running.

yeah.. the maxxis is alittle to heavy for my liking.. i used to run them all the time... and not to mention they are a bi-otch to install. super stiff sidewall. go with the 952 and you will be really happy..
