How does the MX51 hold up on rocky trails?

MX51 Tires are good MX tires and not bad trail tires but they don't last very long. Look into the Dunlop 952. They handle everything well and last forever. I got 30 hours out of my first rear tire, and I am still running the front. Only reason I didn't get more life out of it was because I gave it to a friend (was broke and needed it to go ride), when I pulled it off to put my paddle tire on for a dune trip. I am now 25 hours into my second rear tire and it is holding up just as well as the first. I ride rocky rooted up single tracks, mx tracks, and occasionally desert trails in Arizona. They handle everything well. 13-14 psi is the sweet spot with these tires. All in all I think that they are a great tire. Are they the best tire for any one give terrain, probably not. But they are the best all around tire that I have found. Plus they are a little bit cheaper price wise compared to the MX51 and they last forever. :banana:
