    Well maybe...you'd have to ship it 10 different places I assume. Only 1 per customer it says. Ones on its way to Nashport, OH. :)

    I gave away two 756's in the past 6 months. Used to be the only tire I ran....but after a few years on the Stones....the latest 756 made it one ride on my bike and got peeled off. The other one was relegated to the attic and I just gave it away last week. Come to think of it I gave both tires to the same guy on here.....

    I have a 756 on my 500 and it sucks. Its the worst tire I've ever had on my bike, no traction anywhere and squirms all over when braking. I'm wanting to try a Metzler MC 4 or 5, anyone ever try one of those?

    I don't think the 756 is the best tire for our (North East/ Central Ohio) dirt. It needs more soft clay to have an effective bite like over in SW PA at Hight Point and Steel City...

    403/404 Bridgestones. They came stock on the Suzukis I bought, incredible tires for my tastes.

    Agree with Pit on this one. I always like the 756 on the front, but the rear seemed to wear out quickly. The 403/404 combo was better in every way really.

    Used to run Kendas but they really went up in cost compared to some other brands. The Bridgestones seem to hook up, last a while, and are one of the best priced as far as our dealer cost. Never really liked the Dunlops.

    Incase you need a deal on a set the Michelen M12s are a great all around tire and last a long time. We can get a great price on them right now and sell a set for 118.

    Picked up a couple. Have always had good luck myself with them. All in what you want and like. Besides , I am sure they will work better than our worn out ones!

    I agree. Besides, I think it's all rider preference and experiences. On my 250 smoker, the 756 seemed to work well. I ran the 771 or 742 on the front and they seemed to work.

    Haven't had antyhing, but Pirelli's and the Michelin I have now on the 450. The Pirelli's chucked knobbies quick. The Michelin seems to be doing OK so far. It's more of a mud tire though so works better in the spring and fall (more so the spring..last fall was not typical).

    I've thought about trying the Kenda's, etc., but for now, I do not seem to be putting alot into my tire selection other than price. I looked for a comparable front as well as I need one of those more than the back, but nothing near this deal. Oh well, I can always sell it to my brother. ;)

    If anyone ever finds any deals on 756, 21" front tires let me know...That is my front tire of choice!
