A SiNi would probably last pretty well but I think you'd get better traction with a rubber compund.:p

Alot of guys around heree seem to like Maxxis IT tiers for a decent compramise between traction and longevity.

As mentioned above the Maxxis IT will last a long time, however it is heavy and does lose a lot of that "new-tire bite" fairly shortly. This is all in my opinion of course. I am partial to Bridgestone, but have been trying out Pirelli meats with good results so far. Still too early to tell though.

We are having great luck with bridgestones new 401/402 combos. Especially in the rear 120 size!

I have great luck with Kenda tires. But you're dreaming if you think anything is going to last more tha a season.

Your 12T sprocket may cause premature wear on the chain pad on the swingarm - I'd keep a close eye on it.

By a season do you mean a whole year? I would like to get 20 tyres to last me a season but I dont hink that is going to happen, I would love to find one that lasted that long.

Check out the new Dunlap 952. Intermediate/soft but made with tougher compound. Everything I read on it says it is lasting a lot longer then most tires.

I think I read a write up in Motocross Action where they tested it and said it looked like new, after quite a bit of riding.

The 952 performs similiar to the 756, but last twice as long. Its a great tire for soft to intermediate soil.

I've got some time on Bridgestone 403/404 now and these are very excellent tires in intermediate terrain. Very good on rocks, good on blue groove, good in sand and silt. I'm a Dunlop guy pretty much but the Bridgestones hook-up and wear like iron.

I guess the question is also what is the best tyre for certain conditions. I don't ride track with my '09. Only bush riding which is medium to hard soil. Any recommendations? :)

Michelin MH3. It's a versatile tire with a hard compound that will even allow you to crossover into a little mud if needed. I get more then twice as many rides out of the MH3 than I do with any of the Dunlops (756, 773, or 952).

In my opinion, the only good tires that Bridgestone makes are the 101/102 and they are for mud.
