1. MT21 front / MT43 trials rear
2. K760 / K760
3. MT21 / MT21
4. MT21 / D606

I see a lot of praise for the trials rear but I am most concerned about the lack of sidewall tread. I lean the bike over a lot, off or on road.

Was leaning toward the Kendas because they should last similar to the 6 Days, which I liked, at about half the cost.

I'd go with option 1, been running the Mt-43 for a while now and absolutely love it. The traction when single tracking is amazing compared to a knobby.
